$100 Million: Enough to Buy Landrieu Vote
Democrat Party Senator Mary Landrieu of Louisiana cast her vote for Harry Reid’s health care bill and became the biggest purchased vote in American legislative history. She sold her vote for a cool $100 million in order to begin debate on the anti-life health care bill.
As of 24 hours ago Senator Landrieu was still wavering on whether to vote for the health care bill. But in a dark smoke filled room away from the lights and cameras of the media a deal had been struck which bought the senators vote. Surprising considering President Obama promised an open and lively debate throughout the entire process and he has failed miserably in delivering on this promise.
Lies, corruption, and blatant disregard for the American people, in this instance, the people of Louisiana was in full display as Senator Landrieu cast bought vote for the health care bill. She was so brazen about selling out her soul for money the U.S. government does not have that she proudly declared, “And it’s not a $100 million fix. It’s a $300 million fix.” Bragging that she was bought for $300 million. Some have called it the great new Louisiana Purchase.
She is a Catholic and a graduate of Louisiana State University. How the people of Louisiana voted for this amoral person is beyond me, but I believe she may not be reelected to a second term. She is a member of New Orleans political family royalty and this may explain why she won a narrow victory.
If I were a Cajun or an LSU Tiger I would be deeply embarrassed of having her as the senator of the great state of Louisiana. Keep this in mind when her seat comes up for election in 2010 and remember how she sold her vote against the wishes of the Louisiana people for an outrageous $100300 million.
