Senator Landrieu Meets Protesters in Abbeville

Via The Daily Advertiser, protesters greeted Senator Mary Landrieu at the Vermillion Parish Public Library yesterday where she was there to speak about coastal erosion and protection. The protesters were gathering signatures for their petition to recall Landrieu despite reports that the recall is unconstitutional and is heading to a dead end. Organizers of the recall are proceeding with the effort.

One protester said that the recall petition might be unconstitutional but they feel that Obamacare is also unconstitutional.

Mary Landrieu, with a straight face, says that she is not for government control of health care and she complains about a hidden tax in the current system. I'm assuming she's read the Senate bill which is loaded with taxes, both hidden and not hidden. But I guess that's beside the point. Then she says that with Obamacare, "No more free lunch!" She means that "everyone has to have insurance." Of course, everyone doesn't have to pay for it. Some will still be getting a "free lunch" as you and I pay for it.
