“The contrast couldn’t be more stark: Mary Landrieu is spending tens of thousands of taxpayer dollars on private jets while middle class Louisiana families struggle with skyrocketing health care costs due to her deciding vote for ObamaCare. Mary Landrieu just doesn’t appreciate the real world implications of voting with President Obama 97 percent of the time, and that’s probably because she has been part of the Washington, D.C. liberal establishment for nearly two decades.” – Ben Voelkel, RNC spokesman
Just two years ago, Senator Landrieu “applauded” President Obama when he took executive action to grant temporary legal status to illegal immigrant minors, a move that many feel helped create the current border crisis. And over the years, she has supported the President when he unilaterally added exemptions or extensions to ObamaCare.
With her approval rating at all-time lows, Mary Landrieu is doing everything she can to try and gain traction for her struggling US Senate campaign. Lately, that has been making noise about offshore drilling revenue sharing reform.
But instead of being proactive, like Rep. Bill Cassidy, who has passed two revenue sharing amendments, Senator Landrieu is content to playact for the cameras and then fail to follow through.
“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.
