Mary Landrieu: Senate Corruptocrat

By Wyatt Earp | November 20, 2009

Health Care OverhaulWow, you folks in Louisiana sure have it tough. First, the city of New Orleans is nearly swallowed by Hurricane Katrina. Then, the Saints go on an undefeated run, which with your luck, will end with a loss against the lowly Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Now, your senator literally sold herself and her ObamaCare vote for $100 million.

What does it take to get a wavering senator to vote for health care reform? Here’s a case study.

On page 432 of the Reid bill, there is a section increasing federal Medicaid subsidies for “certain states recovering from a major disaster.” The section spends two pages defining which “states” would qualify, saying, among other things, that it would be states that “during the preceding 7 fiscal years” have been declared a “major disaster area.”

I am told the section applies to exactly one state: Louisiana, the home of moderate Democrat Mary Landrieu, who has been playing hard to get on the health care bill.

In other words, the bill spends two pages describing would could be written with a single world: Louisiana. (This may also help explain why the bill is long.) Senator Harry Reid, who drafted the bill, cannot pass it without the support of Louisiana’s Mary Landrieu.

How much does it cost? According to the Congressional Budget Office: $100 million. (H/TGateway Pundit)

I wonder if she’ll receive her payment in silver?

The sad part is that most folks in Louisiana won’t care. They will be reaping the benefits of this corruption almost immediately.

    How many decades will have to go by before we never hear about Katrina again. They act like they are the only ones who ever had a hurricane. If part of the city was not under sea level and the mayor and governor had not abandoned ship the issue would have been forgotten by now.

    Let’s see Jefferson got 13 years for $90,000 in his fridge as the result of a bribe. Hmmm, $100 million should get at least life in prison without parole for Reid, Pelosi and Obowma.

    I was listening to Tom Sullivan today and a lady called in to say the last time Louisiana got a grant of $1.5 million, Landrieu gave it away to a school district in Texas in exchange for $80K in reelection funds.

    Now people calling into to talk shows are about as reliable as anything you can find on the internet, but it doesn’t sound implausible!

    I’ve got this health care vote and it’s bleeping golden.

    It’s a valuable thing, you don’t just give it away for bleeping nothing.

    Look at that photo and tell me that doesn’t look like Blagojevich in drag.

    Lets see $100 million per Senator. That is only $10 Billion extra in the bill out of $867 Billion that is chump change.

    I can’t remember if I posted it here already, but do a word search for “Ethnic” in the House bill. They are putting racial and ethnic quotas into health clinics, hospitals, insurance companies, medical schools, nursing schools. You name it they want a racial component in it. Fifty years of trying to get a color blind society and now we are trying to put color back in.

    proof, Tom Sullivan is great. I have been listening to him for 17 years. He started out here in Northern California.

    Ralph – I’m with you on Katrina. Let’s move on, shall we, New Orleans?

    Proof – Remember the good old days when politicians respected us enough to take a bribe in a back alley? Now they do it out in the open and few people call them on it.

    Captain – With less French people.

    Smite – Boggles the mind, doesn’t it?

    Kaveman – If that button pops, it’ll put out an eye!

    Ingineer66 – But we’re in a post-racial country, thanks to the election of President Obama!
