K10: POTUS Edition

Obama Marks Katrina Anniversary (Video)



Wednesday (8.27) was a beautiful New Orleans day, perfect for a presidential visit. President Barack Obama spoke at the recently opened Andrew P. Sanchez Community Center (1616 Caffin Avenue) in the Lower 9th Ward. The POTUS touched on government failure, income inequality, and lots about the Recovery.


CPR for ALS: Gleason Act Signed Into Law


David Vitter and Barack Obama do not agree on much, but Steve Gleason has a way of transcending traditional boundaries. On Thursday (7.30) night, the White House announced that the POTUS signed Vitter’s Steve Gleason Act of 2015 (S.9804) into law. The new legislation will help provide crucial technology for Americans stricken with ALS.


Obamacare Marketplace Nets Less Than 400 Signups in Louisiana


The White House released the first round of data for the federally-run marketplace on Wednesday, and the numbers were looking sickly. Amid the website snafus and confusion about whether people who already have insurance will be able to keep it, 387 people signed up for a plan with the federally-run insurance marketplace via healthcare.gov in the website's first month of operation, according to federal data.


Obama Makes Port in New Orleans


President Barack Obama needed a break from his usual surroundings up north this week, where he felt like he just wasn't being understood. So, as many people have before, he came to New Orleans Friday to soak in some local hospitality.


Obama Will Speak at Port of New Orleans


POTUS will be making port in the Crescent City on Friday. President Barack Obama's already-announced trip to New Orleans will be highlighted by a speech at the Port of New Orleans, according to the White House press office.


Obama to Hold Event in New Orleans


Barack Obama is coming back to New Orleans. Air Force One will touch down in the New Orleans area on Fri., Nov. 8, for "an event on the economy," White House spokesman Jay Carney said late this week. There was no immediate word on where the prez will appear, or who will accompany him. But he's already getting appeals for places stop.


Polite Clears First Senate Hurdle


Kenneth Polite's Senate confirmation process is smooth sailing so far. A U.S. Senate committee signed off on the nominee to become the U.S. Attorney for the New Orleans area. Polite picked up a favorable report from the Senate Judiciary Committee. Now, the New Orleans native's nomination will head to the full U.S. Senate for a vote.


Vitter Seeks Obamacare for POTUS, Congress


David Vitter wants to give Obamacare to Obama. The junior Louisiana senator and friends say they're working on new legislation that would close an exemption in the Affordable Care Act that allows member of Congress and other pols to receive subsidies for health care coverage. The Senators say it is in the name of equality and fairness, and not trying to cripple the health care legislation with even more costs, or stick it to their elected brethren.


Landrieu, Vitter Call on POTUS to Help Pregnant Women Eat More Seafood


Mary Landrieu, David Vitter and 18 of their U.S. Senate colleagues have a message for pregnant women that anyone in South Louisiana could understand: Eat more seafood. In turn, the U.S. Senators from the Gulf seafood capital are urging President Barack Obama to update FDA standards that urge pregnant women to satisfy those cravings with more food that once swam.
