Obamacare is a big step toward a single payer socialized health care system, and Louisiana Democrat Mary Landrieu is “embarrassed” that we haven’t embraced that failing model already. Obamacare is unpopular enough in Landrieu’s Louisiana, but now she’s going full-on European socialist, which will likely cost her next November:
Democratic senator Mary Landrieu says she’s embarrassed to go to places in Europe like France and Spain because some Americans do not have health insurance. Landrieu, who is up for reelection in 2014, represents the state of Louisiana.
“People are scared when they’re sick, and they’re much stronger when they’re well,” Landrieu said at a Friday lunch, according to the American Press. “It’s embarrassing to me to go to places like France and Spain … and their workers all manage to have health insurance that can’t be taken away.”
Landrieu also recently doubled down on her support of Obamacare, proclaiming that she would “vote for it tomorrow”, despite all of the delays and the unraveling of much of the law. I suppose when you’re a long time incumbent in political trouble, you might as well double down. Louisiana could use a Senator that actually represents their values.
