LA Legislative Session Has Obamacare, Gun Sales Tax Holidays, and Equal Pay on the Docket
In November 2012, the latest round of elections put a number of politicians in office for another term or the first time. Now, as the start of the legislative session looms (April 8), we at NoDef are taking the time to look at the actual work these politicians are planning for this year, the fruits of their labor. In the first article of this series, we review some of the 668 House Bills pre-filed thus far.
Mary Landrieu Slams Jindal on Health Care
After seeing Governor Jindal's Sunday appearance on Meet the Press, Senior Senator Mary Landrieu had some harsh words towards Bobby J's stance on Medicaid. The poster boy for conservative politics is telling the feds to keep their money to themselves, a move that Landrieu believes is more in the Gov.'s interest than those of his constituents. At a press conference today, Landrieu accused Bobby J of putting the 2016 presidential election before the interests of his own state.
Jindal Pushes OTC Birth Control in Opposition of Obamacare
Following his forays into not being Mitt Romney and the fiscal cliff, Bobby Jindal is going for the trifecta of closely-held conservative credos with his latest move to gain national attention. While he's cutting the health care budget at home, our Gov weighs in on social issues with a Wall Street Journal op-ed about birth control.
Jindal to Decline Health Care Exchange For Louisiana
The presidential race is over, but Bobby Jindal's campaign has only begun. A day after the gov gave a long interview to Politco about his vision for the future of the Republican Party, Jindal let another national media outlet in on a bit about the future of the state he governs. Jindal told Huffington Post he is set to formally reject the health care exchange set forth in the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare), making good on a statement he made during the presidential campaign
Biologist, Congressman Call Out Jindal
Mitt Romney will soon have to decide who will speak up for him come the end of August at the GOP's Tampa convention, and the speculation about the potential no. 2s are only getting louder. For VP hopeful Bobby Jindal, that means adding scrutiny about education and health care to all the noise about Nessie and exorcism.
Bobby Jindal's Tofu Tax Tell-All
Justice Antonin Scalia famously tried to defeat Obamacare references by talking a lot about broccoli. But the Supreme Court upheld the law, so now the Republicans opposed to the law are going down a road we didn't expect. They're going even healthier, and using the governor of our unhealthy state as the new point man.
Mayor Mitch Landrieu: Jindal Obamacare Hardball Could Threaten New Orleans Health Programs
by Mary-Devon Dupuy
Mayor Mitch was above sea level today, but that didn't preclude him from coming down off the mountain - via satellite - to weigh in on health care. Around noon, MSNBC beamed Landrieu in from the Aspen Ideas Festival, where he reacted to Gov. Bobby Jindal’s Sunday speechifyin' about not enacting the Affordable Care Act in Louisiana, talked about New Orleans' staggering murder rate and blushed when Andrea Mitchell complimented him on his smooth dance moves.
Bobby Jindal Talks Health Care, Times-Picayune Cuts & Mardi Gras on Meet the Press (VIDEO)
After storming out of the gates Thursday, our Veep-seeking gov, Bobby Jindal, continued his rapid-fire opposition to Obamacare on Sunday morning's edition of Meet the Press. Paired with former Democratic presidential candidate Howard Dean, Jindal rattled off his case against President Barack Obama's health care refrom, but host David Gregory still had a chance to press him about his declaration that he won't enact Obamacare in Louisiana. Jindal also chimed in with some Mardi Gras and TImes-Picayune talk.
Like any politician named Buddy, Louisiana Attorney General Buddy Caldwell is tough to pin down. One day, he's near the center of continued calls about the vailidity Obama's birth certificate. The next, he's staking out a position to the left of the President on health care. Such is the life of a Democrat-turned Republican. Read on for a recap of Buddy's week.
La. Senators Smile, Spit Bile on Health Care
Louisiana's two-headed delegation to the U.S. Senate once again showed today that bitterly disliking each other isn't any cause for being mean. The odd couple's notoriously stormy relationship seemed to be cooling off in recent weeks as the pair teamed up to author the BP money roadmap known as the RESTORE Act. Heck, they even put out a press release together. But this week's health care debate in the Supreme Court apparently touched off that little voice on Junior Senator's shoulder that says, "Go ahead, Vitty, just get her good!"
