Why Are Democrats Holding Louisiana Hostage?

Mary Landrieu's deal for an extra $300 million in Medicaid funds for poor Louisiana residents has been hailed by Landrieu as a great victory for the people of Louisiana, and by just about everyone else as a shakedown of Harry Reid and the American people.

But there is another, equally unseemly, angle.

If the poor in Louisiana so badly need this assistance, why aren't Harry Reid and other Democrats who control Congress giving Louisiana the aid without the string attached of Landrieu's vote?

Why is Harry Reid using the poor of Louisiana as a bargaining chip? We know why, but let's spread the blame around to all corners where it is deserved.

When it comes to passing Obama-Pelosi-Reid-care, it seems hard to distinguish between hostage and hostage-taker.

  1. No one is holding Lousiana hostage except the Senator herself. It's like the old joke about we know what kind of a woman she is, just what her price is. Evidently it is a little more high priced than we thought.

    Power whores, all of them. She does not want the poor to be lifted up, then they wouldn't need her anymore. So that pretty much answers why they don't really do anything.

    Remember that social workers are really anti social workers. When one enters your home, your family is never the same. Contrary to what they preach about learned dependency, it is do good busy bodies that have the dependency.
