#LASen: Mary Landrieu working hard to disown Obamacare
Published on December 12, 2013
Sen. Mary Landrieu, who voted for Obamacare and then later voted to protect the regulations that have resulted in millions being thrown off their health care plans, is out with a new ad portraying her as the good guy:
Some conservatives who feared that the House risked helping Landrieu if it passed a “keep your plan” bill and Harry Reid brought up her bill in the Senate. Obviously, their fears were misplaced. Landrieu cut this ad anyway, even though her bill has not and never will get a vote. To put it bluntly, her bill was a face-saving measure intended for the circular file, beacuse it would completely destroy the Obaamcare bill she voted for the first time and the rules she originally voted for.
Moreover, all those people are going to lose their plans anyway — either this year or next — because the Obama administration’s on-the-fly rule-change only lets them keep their plans for one year.
