For Sale: Sen. Mary Landrieu ~ $300 Million And She's Yours!

By

Sen. Mary Landrieu (D) Louisiana made no pretense that she held out for a pay off in exchange for her vote on Health Care Saturday.  The price tag was $300 million in Medicaid funds for her state. To secure her yes vote Harry Reid added a provision in the bill allocating the $300 million.

Maybe I don't understand math, but doesn't that add to the total of the package?   Did the CBO factor in all these sweetheart deals when they figured out the cost of health care?

She is proud that she asked for the money and got it. 
Mary still claims that does not mean she will ultimately vote for the bill.

Yeah, we hear ya Mary.  Going have your hand out again when it comes vote time?


60% of Americans are against the Health Care Bill, but Mary Mary is making hay while the sun shines.

  • Like most politicians Mary is not concerned how adversely the taxation proposed in this bill will impact her constituents.  She's only concerned with coming home with jingle jingle in her pockets now.

Just another example that Obama has done nothing to clean up the system nor is he being transparent about what happened.  When asked about the deal his Press Secretary dodged the question about whether it was unseemly or not.

Of course not! Washington Politics as usual.

This unfortunately is business as usual when it comes to politics. It's too much to ask people to just do their job and represent their people. They have to get extra on top of it.

JL I guess cleaning up the house, transparency and no more good old boy politics was only campaign rhetoric.

As you say, it's Washington as it always has been.
