Talk about Senators BOUGHT and SOLD by the insurance company, Landrieu is one of them. Also, talk about a poor state like Louisiana where most of those folks don't even have health care, let alone JOBS, and 20% of Louisiana population is uninsured?
And she is voting NO for public option?
Public Option is the compromise, Senator Landrieu.
It is will of the people time. Organize for America, time. for real.
And President Obama it is reconcilation time for health care reform.
Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) said on Tuesday that she is opposed to the creation of a public health care plan patients could opt into that would compete with private insurance.
"No, I'm not open to it. I'm not open to a public option," said Landrieu. "However, I will remain open to a compromise, a full compromise. Public option is not something that I support. I don't think it's the right way to go."
Landrieu is a key swing-voting "centrist" Democrat. Her vote may be less valuable, however, if Democrats decide to move health care reform through the Senate using the reconciliation process, which requires only a majority vote.
