Mary Landrieu Standing Up for Free Welfare

As reported in the Shreveport Times today, U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) called her fellow Louisiana Senator, David Vitter (R-LA), “mean-spirited”.

What did Senator Vitter do?

Well, he proposed a Senate Amendment setting forth that public housing (taxpayer funded housing) residents who are not working do a whopping EIGHT hours of community service per month, roughly two hours per week to help out their local communities. After all, they are receiving housing paid for by taxpayers, and if they are not working, then one would think it to be a good idea for those recipients to give two hours per week of their time to help clean their local neighborhood or volunteer at a soup kitchen.

72 U.S. Senators agreed with David Vitter, including over 30 Democrats, as the measure passed 73-25 on September 16.

Even liberal California Senator Barbara Boxer voted for Vitter’s common sense amendment.

But Senator Mary Landrieu was one of the 25 NAY votes and lashed out at Senator Vitter for his amendment. Obviously Senator Landrieu is looking to protect her real base in Louisiana, which consists of generation welfare and “free” government housing recipients, a segment that the Landrieu family has catered to for decades.

Why begin trying to promote personal responsibility now?

Mary Landrieu AGAIN Can’t Make Up Her Mind‏

Once again, U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) just can’t make up her mind.

Last Fall, while running for re-election, she voted AGAINST the socialist $700 Billion bank bailout, known as TARP, and sent out press releases announcing her strong stance. However, twice this year already, she has voted in favor of continuing the TARP boondoggle.

Back on April 2, she voted AGAINST a Senate amendment to end the TARP program and saving the remaining $272 billion allocated to the program.

One month later, on May 4, Senator Landrieu voted AGAINST removing barriers to allow banks and financial institutions to return allocated TARP funds.

U.S. Senator David Vitter (R-LA) was the sponsor of both amendments. Where are Senator Landrieu’s press releases announcing her votes to continue TARP?

Yesterday, Senator Landrieu voted FOR restricting federal taxpayer funds from ACORN. This was after several stories and indictments regarding ACORN officials.

She will probably promote that vote to many of her more conservative and moderate Louisiana constituents.

However, on two separate occasions in February and March of this year, she voted AGAINST Senate amendments to restrict federal taxpayer funds from ACORN. The second linked vote below is on a motion to table the amendment to restrict funds from ACORN, meaning a YEA vote was a vote FOR giving ACORN federal taxpayer dollars.

http://senate.gov/legislative/LIS/roll_call_lists/roll_call_vote_cfm.cfm?congress=111&session=1&vote=00114#position

Senator Mary Landrieu does not vote consistently with the interests of her constituents in Louisiana, as she claimed during re-election season. Rather, she votes in her own political self-interests.

Arrest Business Owners and Politicians who Harbor Illegal Aliens

It's about time we start arresting those business owners who employ and harbor illegal aliens.

Ex-Legislator’s Husband Pleads Guilty

As the article states, Mr. Dartez is a former Democrat State Central Committee member, and his defense attorney in this case, Mike Skinner, is a former Chairman of the DSCC.

Where do you stand personally, Mike, in regards to those business owners who knowingly hire illegals?

Meanwhile, we find out how well the sanctuary city policies of San Francisco and its mayor are working out:

Officials Try to Explain Suspect’s Release

When politicians declare their cities as Sanctuary Cities, then any time a previously arrested illegal alien commits a murder, the victim’s blood is on their hands.

Acadia Parish GOP Executive Committee Passes Resolution Regarding Legislative Pay Raises

Resolution

Whereas: On June 11, 2008, the Louisiana Senate voted to pass Senate Bill 672, the largest legislative pay raise in the history of the United States, by a vote of 20-16;

And whereas: Those twenty (20) State Senators voted to TRIPLE their annual salary at a time when the State of Louisiana is suffering from population loss and stagnant economic growth, due largely to irresponsible state government practices and the hurricanes of 2005;

And whereas: Of the YES votes, six (6) came from Senators who are members of the Republican Party, namely Robert Adley, A.G. Crowe, Dale M. Erdey, Robert W. “Bob” Kostelka, Daniel “Danny” Martiny, “Mike” Michot;

And whereas: The Acadia Parish Republican Executive Committee expects its party leaders and elected officials to represent responsible fiscal practices;

Then therefore be it resolved: That the Acadia Parish Republican Executive Committee unanimously condemns those above-mentioned Republican State Senators who voted in favor of tripling their base salary and commends those State Senators, Republicans and Democrats alike, including our own Senators, “Nick” Gautreaux and Dan “Blade” Morrish, who voted against such a self-service proposition.

Also, whereas: On June 13, 2008, the Louisiana House of Representatives voted to pass an amended Senate Bill 672, doubling state legislative salaries, by a vote of 56-45, which was concurred by the Senate on June 16, 2008, by a 20-18 vote;

And whereas: The primary reason given by state legislators for such a large increase in pay is to allow more citizens the chance to serve in public office;

And whereas: If the above mentioned reason for pay raise is the true intention of those in favor, then said raise should not become effective until the next election for each legislative seat;

Then therefore be it resolved: That the Acadia Parish Republican Executive Committee unanimously commends those State Representatives and State Senators, Republicans and Democrats alike, who voted against said double-pay raise and requests that Governor Bobby Jindal use his veto power to kill any legislative pay raise that is effective before the next election of each legislative seat.

Signed, this 25th day of June, 2008
