“Every day there’s more proof that Mary Landrieu’s clout is nothing more than a figment of her own imagination. Mary Landrieu isn’t delivering for Louisiana and is desperately trying to pass off talk as action and results. Louisiana voters won’t buy that this fall, just like they won’t buy her track record of supporting President Obama 97 percent of the time.” – Ben Voelkel, RNC spokesman
As POLITICO points out, this has been a rough week for Mary Landrieu.
Her promise that ObamaCare would decrease health care costs was revealed to be a lie when insurance provider filings revealed nearly 60,000 Louisianians could face rate increases of up to 24 percent in 2015.
Despite chairing a Homeland Security subcommittee, Senator Landrieu has failed to act decisively to secure the border. As this dangerous situation continues, Louisianians should feel confident in their ability to exercise their Second Amendment rights to protect themselves and their families. But the leader of a gun-grabbing super PAC recently praised Senator Landrieu for having “stood up” for his anti-Second Amendment crusade.
This weekend, the border crisis came to Louisiana. A man illegally in the United States from Honduras came to Louisiana and allegedly murdered a woman in Metairie. The alleged murderer was previously captured by Border Patrol agents in Texas and let go as part of the Obama Administration catch and release policy that Mary Landrieu has failed to stop.
For generations liberal thinking has dominated our political decisions and that thinking has led to the decline in one of society’s fundamental principles; the nuclear family unit. It has also brought us an acceptance of children birthing children, of constant blame being placed upon society for all the ills of the poor, of over dependency upon government programs, and of the constant demand for wealth transfer schemes that fly in the face of an orderly capitalist society and that, frankly, do not and never will work.
When voting for the law, Senator Landrieu said it would lower costs, but now we can see that is certainly not the case. New insurance company filings with the state Department of Insurance show that nearly 60,000 Louisianans could face health insurance premium increases of up to 24 percent when their policies renew for 2015.
Republican Party of Louisiana Chairman Roger Villere issued the following statement regarding State Rep. Paul Hollis’ decision to drop out of the race for United States Senate:
“As a businessman and elected official, Paul Hollis’ conservative leadership has been an asset to Louisiana. Running for elected office is a trying, tiring process, but Paul did so with a great attitude – meeting and working with party activists around the state to spread his message and vision. Paul ran a positive campaign, talking about his ideas and plans for the future without resorting to attacking his fellow Republicans. He knows our ultimate goal - defeating Mary Landrieu and retiring Harry Reid as Majority Leader – can only be achieved with a united Republican Party.
