So Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) made the rather obvious and understated comment that the South “has not always been the friendliest place for African Americans.” Yeah, you could say slavery and lynchings and discrimination in every aspect of life are kind of “unfriendly.” Or you could be the GOP and go absolutely batshit. It’s always a safe bet that the higher the reading on their outrage meter, the less there really is to be upset about.
Truth? They can’t handle the truth, whether it’s history, economics, biology, climate science, or physics. We already have a Congress and state houses filled with morons and on Tuesday we’re going to get even more.
Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA), facing a tough re-election fight next year, is sponsoring a bill in the Senate that wouldn’t just allow health insurance companies to renew the policies being cancelled, but would require them to do so.
About 92,000 Louisianans are expected to face cancelled policies.
Okay, so she’s just outraged about those people. But why isn’t she outraged about the 400,000 Louisianans who won’t get Medicaid next year because her state has refused the expansion.
