'I've often wondered if they're better off as slaves'
"End your relationship, end your relationship" -Beck
From the first hour of today's Glenn Beck show.
“It’s a solid law that needs improvement,” Landrieu said. “My opponent offers nothing but repeal, repeal, and repeal. And even with all the law’s setbacks, we’re seeing benefits for thousands of people in Louisiana.”Also, Landrieu said that Obamacare will not be the primary focus of her senate campaign, not for reasons of it’s unpopularity, but because it is not part of her record, she told the Post.
“I think the benefits that people have received are worth fighting for,” Landrieu continued, citing an end to discrimination against preexisting conditions and extended coverage for young adults on parents’ plans. ”I think Bill Cassidy is going to be at a distinct disadvantage. He has insurance, but he’s also denying it to the 242,000 people who fall into the Jindal gap. He also wants to take coverage away from tens of thousands who have gotten it for the first time.”
Asked whether the ACA and Obama were serious liabilities for her, Landrieu said: “This race will be won not on the president’s record, but on my record…The Affordable Care Act won’t be the centerpiece of my campaign. The centerpiece will be my leadership and ability to deliver for the people of my state, no matter who the president is.”----
"Obamacare on the roll-out was a disaster," he said of the Affordable Care Act and the initial online health care enrollment. "They say they got 7 million signed up. Well, I don't believe them, that they have 7 million. It was such a mess, I don't believe what they say anymore." Even if they have 7 million, that still leaves millions without health insurance, he said. (About 42 million are without health insurance this year, according to a new Congressional Budget Office report.)
