Campaign ad for Rep.-Elect Vance McAllister ®

Louisiana voters elected Republican Vance McAllister in a runoff to fill the state’s vacant Fifth District U.S. House seat on Saturday. McAllister, a businessman who embraced the expansion of Medicaid available to the state under the Affordable Care Act, defeated a Republican party favorite who called for full Obamacare repeal.

In a district won by Mitt Romney with 61 percent of the vote in 2012, two Republicans were the top vote-getters in a 14-candidate October primary. McAllister, who received nearly 60 percent of the vote in Saturday’s special election, criticized much of the Affordable Care Act, but also criticized Gov. Bobby Jindal’s ® decision to dismantle charity hospitals in the state, and to reject its Medicaid expansion, which would expand the qualifications for Medicaid recipients and extend healthcare coverage to hundreds of thousands of uninsured Louisianans. “Our governor and Sen. Riser right here have gutted [heath care] to the core and privatized it.”

McAllister’s top opponent, State Senator Neil Riser ®, received support from House Republican Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA), three of the four other Louisiana Republican Congressmen, the National Rifle Association, FreedomWorks and, more tacitly, Gov. Jindal. Riser ran

saying that he would go to Washington to balance the budget and stop Obamacare — not make friends — and slammed McAllister for ” attempting to redefine himself and stand with President Obama.”

According to President Obama, 265,000 Lousianans would benefit from the Medicaid expansion. According to Jindal’s own Department of Health and Hospitals, the billions of dollars in federal payments available to the state would allow about 272,000 of the roughly 633,000 uninsured adults in the state to get subsidized health insurance on the exchange. But citing potential future costs, Jindal has rejected the expansion, saying “We will not allow President Obama to bully Louisiana into accepting an expansion of Obamacare.”

McAllister received the endorsement of some Democrats who believed him more willing to work across party lines.

Think Progress/communism :D

That all you got? Obviously you don't tell the truth, and you sure as hell aren't a warrior. When a moderate Republican wins in a blue state (Christie), and a moderate Republican wins in one of the most red states in the country (McAllister), the tea bags are in deep doggy do do. Your 15 minutes are up asswipe. You nutjobs have officially overstayed your welcome.

Must suck to watch your kind getting their asses handed to them by the voting public. As usual, you get it wrong again. It's the people with successful responsible lives voting you out of office. That will be the norm going forward, but then again I've been telling you losers on the board that for over a year now.

You poor bastard. This guy won because in Louisiana, Democrats are allowed to vote in Republican primaries.

This doesn't mean anything.

 

Thanks for playing, dumbass.

It's "moderate" to expand a program that's only years from going bankrupt?

 

You must be using the Moonbat Dictionary. :D

See you next year, wackjob.

 

How's that Obamacare thing-ey going? :D

You haven't been right about an election yet cletis. How many times do you have to get your ass kicked before reality occurs to you? Yep, see you next year, but there's no doubt in my mind after yet another tea bagger ass kicking, you will be right back the day after telling us just wait until next time.

 

Here's a clue for you cletis. There isn't going to be a next time. Get used to the new Progressive country you live in.

I was right about Bush twice, right about Obama being elected, right about the 2010 Republican Wave but wrong about Obama's re-election.

 

So that's four out of five right, moonbat.

 

If Obama were running today, he'd lose in a landslide, so I was correct about what an utter failure he is.

 

Yep, see you next year, but there's no doubt in my mind after yet another tea bagger ass kicking, you will be right back the day after telling us just wait until next time.

Here's a clue for you, moonbat, you can sit at your computer and spread your moonbat Disinformation all over the internet on every political board in the freaking universe, but almost no one buys your bulls*** anymore.

 

You and your fanatic leftist buddies pulled one over twice, but Obamacare is collapsing and Americans are really, really p****ed.

 

Obama is now seen by almost everyone as a liar and an utter failure.

 

And that will be reflected next year. :)

You're clueless. You started this thread, not knowing that democrats voted this guy in office.

Bottom line is another Republican goes to Washington.

 

Dumbass.

Honestly, it's a no brainer slam dunk for states to expand medicaid as the Feds will pay for 100% of it. It means the folks who usually can't pay their medical bills are now covered and that means hospitals don't end up losing millions each year thus having to raise prices on everyone else to make up the difference. The tea baggers just oppose it because Obama was for it but policy wise it's great for the states and great for the health care industry.

"Truthwarrior," hm. That's a joke.

Odd tag for our most pathological liar. I can't recall a post by that nut that was not mostly lies and bullcrap.

 

As for the OP......obviously it's not till 2014 that tea Teabag cult gets dumped on, wheter by the normal conservatives or by Dems. I EXPECT the Teabag fad will soon burn out, but maybe not all at once. It's hard to sustain such a mix of neurotic nonsense,paranoid delusions, lies and bad nihilist policies. People don't want a know-nothing, do-nothing congress.

I'm sure you don't care, but if you ever do want anyone to ever take you seriously (because nobody does now), you should take the word "communism" out of your personal lexicon. You look like an azz.

 

 

Must suck to hate people with successful responsible lives as much as you do, loser.

 

 

You mean like the RNC hate baggers and the Chamber of Commerce, just about every reasonable Republican lobbyist out there, and the few conscious republican voters left? Yea, those guys hate the baggers. It must suck to be you.

Let's see. SCOTUS gave you 2000, 2002 happened a year after 9/11 (and you guys blame Hurricane Sandy?), and you guys led a lying character assassination on Kerry in 2004. I wouldn't be proud of those years.

Not one single liberal MSM recount gave Algore Florida, moonbat. He was trying to steal it.

 

Character assassination of Kerry? Is that what you call the facts? :D

 

Imbecile.

Dumbass.

Bottom line is Medicare continues it's expansion in all 50 states, and only a fraction of those eligible have signed up. With the majority of those eligible being in red states. The election of McAllister just traded a moderate Republican for a tea bagger. Bottom line is another tea bagger loss in a long line of tea bag losses, which will be a staggering number of tea bag losses after next year. If you see that as a win, then i'm happy for the loss.

 

Dumbass.
