Louisiana has always had more than its share of welfare parasites, as well as more than its share of crooked and corrupt politicians. I won’t go back as far as Huey Long, whose finesse at corruption inspired a Hollywood movie, but more recently, Congressman William J. Jefferson, who Democrats once boasted as the first black Louisiana Congressmen since Reconstruction. He was exposed, thanks to Hurricane Katrina. If you have a short-term, Democrat memory, check him out here:

And check out how Senator Mary Landrieu sold her vote for Obamacare here:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/...

Blame the Republicans? All 60 Democrats in the Senate voted for the Bill, the minimum to get Obamacare passed, and all Republican Senators voted against it. Senator Landrieu need $100 million to make up for shortfalls in Medicaid funds; she got $300 million by the largesse of the Obama Administration.

Now comes Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu, the consummate hypocrite who sold her vote to give Obama his needed 60 to pass Obamacare. She is currently grandstanding by pretending to do something about the 93 million Americans who will lose their existing health plans and doctors. Due to Obama’s Draconian guidelines that have declared those health plans to be non MEC (although the holders of those plans were perfectly happy with their existing plans, and the plans met all their needs, allowing the policy holders to keep the same doctors) Obamacare says they are insufficient and Obamacare will raise their payments as much as 100%, or more, in many cases to make up for the subsidized welfare recipients who pay little or nothing. They are the same old perennial recipients of Medicaid and other welfare benefits. The Obamacare does nothing more than give the illusion that “everyone” has to buy Obamacare and that it is therefore “fair and equal.” It is just another of his Marxist ploys to redistribute the wealth and put more of a burden upon the middle class taxpayers and protect his core constituency, the beneficiaries of Obama socialism. What the Democrats need to do is to get people off welfare instead of buying their votes with a new health-care, welfare bill and other new welfare programs.

Senator Mary Landrieu’s grandstanding is merely a futile exercise in deception (or CYA) to try to hang onto her Senate seat, which she may well lose in the election of 2014. If she does lose, the nation as a whole will be better off. She knows that there is no way she can save those 93 million insurance policies because Obama planned it that way from the start, but kept his motives hidden in its thousands of pages of the Bill. Democrat leader, Nancy Pelosi said,“We have to pass the bill to see what’s in it.”

That is about as dumb as that old childhood prank that older bullies played on small children back in the old, one-room-school-house days where students of all ages mingled together at recess. The bully, who might be enjoying some candy, would tell the young dupes:“Close your eyes and open your mouth,” making the dupe think that he would place some candy in his mouth. Instead, the bully would place a dead bug or something else nasty in the victim's mouth.

Check out Senator Landrieu’s effort at CYA (ploy) here.
