ObamaCare Sticker Shock For Tens Of Thousands Of Consumers In Louisiana

As President Obama reminded voters last week, his failed agenda is on the ballot this fall. That’s bad news for rubber stamp Mary Landrieu, who has supported the Obama agenda 97 percent of the time.

 

As you’ll recall, Senator Landrieu cast the deciding vote to create ObamaCare and has doubled down on her support, saying she would vote for it again – even as it causes more and more headaches for Louisiana families. Now, health insurers have posted 2015 rates for Louisiana customers, and many families will be seeing increases of nearly 20 percent. This is on top of reports of workers having their pay and hours cut or losing their job completely because of ObamaCare’s regulations.

 

“Mary Landrieu’s vote to create ObamaCare keeps looking worse and worse, but she still says she would vote for it again. Landrieu’s continued support for President Obama’s failed agenda even as workers lose their jobs and their families face massive ObamaCare cost increases shows just how out of touch she is with mainstream Louisiana.” – Ben Voelkel, RNC spokesman
