It’s Time to Focus on Defeating Landrieu

Posted on by dsachtleben

“Mary Landrieu needs to be replaced in 2014. Her record is abysmal. She’s turned her back on Louisiana values and become a full-fledged devotee of the Obama agenda.

“I’m grateful for the many Louisianians who have urged me to challenge Senator Landrieu in 2014. We share a desire to replace her in the U.S. Senate. That desire is so strong, that for me to enter the race now would risk a contest between two experienced Republican Congressmen, potentially offering Senator Landrieu a path back to Washington. [……]

Posted on by dsachtleben

Shreveport, LA – Congressman John Fleming, M.D., released the following statement after Senator Mary Landrieu voted against repealing Obamcare (Roll Call vote #51), voted for the medical device tax (Roll Call vote #47), and voted for taxpayer-funded health care coverage for illegal immigrants (Roll Call vote #77):

 

“What is she thinking? Thirty-two Senate Democrats voted last week to repeal the medical device tax. But not Mary Landrieu. The Obamacare medical device tax has killed jobs and stifled innovation. Worse yet, the tax threatens the well being of patients by slapping a $29 billion tax on the medical device industry, making MRI machines and pacemakers more expensive. [……]
