Louisiana and Arkansas Democrats, Get Off Your Asses

I would imagine I don’t have many readers from Arkansas and Louisiana, but if you are from one of those states, and you do read this blog, e-mail or call your representatives to the US Senate and tell them to allow the heath bill to go up for debate. The vote they are wavering on isn’t a vote to support or approve the heath bill before them. All the vote is, is to allow it to be debated. They can then try to make changes to the bill, but that can’t be done until it’s up for discussion.

In Louisiana contact Mary Landrieu -here

The bill is designed to rein in costs, expand coverage and bar industry practices like denying coverage to those with pre-existing conditions.

Republicans (The party of No) don’t support the bill because it’s proposed by Democrats. But Democrats should at least support the concept of allowing the bill to be debated, amended, and voted on.
