Remember When Mary Landrieu Doubled Down? She Wishes She Didn’t

Mary Landrieu looks for independent, GOP support |

Democrat Mary Landrieu’s quest for a fourth Senate term will turn on whether she can attract just enough support from independents and Republicans to win in this increasingly conservative state.

The daughter and sister of New Orleans mayors, that’s been Landrieu’s re-election strategy since 2002, when her donors included a Baton Rouge physician named Bill Cassidy_now her Republican challenger in this year’s midterm elections.

Hm.  What a surprise. 

Louisiana Democrat: I Would Vote for ObamaCare Again

Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) has doubled down on her vote to pass ObamaCare in 2010 and her subsequent and consistent support of the unpopular law.

During an event sponsored by the Southwest Louisiana Chamber of Commerce, Landrieu defended ObamaCare and declared that she would again vote for the law if it came back up in Congress.

“No more free-riders. Everybody has to share responsibility so we can keep a healthy workforce and keep it strong,” said Landrieu in her defense of ObamaCare. “If I had to vote for the bill again, I would vote for it tomorrow.”

Nothing like the stupidity, greed, arrogance, and power-lust of the average Democrat to blind them to the possibilities of their own vulnerability.  So you doubled down, eh?

I hope your opponents are slathering every video screen in Louisiana with recordings of your glorious double-down, Senator, and I hope you choke on it as your political career ends up swinging in the wind from the nearest metaphorical lamppost.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. Landrieu: “so we can keep a healthy workforce”

    An attempt at empathy, but not quite right.

    If you respect others as individuals, important to themselves, then you want a healthy population.

    If you feel you are a member of the nobility, with plans and designs dependent on ever more taxes, then you want a healthy and productive peasant workforce to supply energy to the state and its grandees.

    John F. Kennedy: Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.

    Forget about your peasant lives. Put your efforts into the collective projects that my family and friends are directing.
