(USA Today) Louisiana three-term Senate Democrat Mary Landrieu, first elected in 1996 defended her earlier comment speaking with NBC News Chuck Todd, that Obama and her are unpopular in her state because her constituents are racist and sexist.
“The main reason the president has struggled here is because his energy policies are not in line with the people of Louisiana. We are pro-drilling, pro-oil, gas state. The offshore moratorium was extremely unpopular in my opinion–It made a lot of people angry and put many businesses at risk. In addition, the South has not always been the friendliest place for African-Americans to advance and its been a difficult place for Women to be recognized as the leaders we are. Everyone knows this is the truth and I will continue to speak the truth, even as some would twist my words seeking political advantage.”

(Daily Caller) On Thursday, Senator David Vitter (R-LA) slammed Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) of lying and telling their Constituents that there is no such thing as an ObamaCare exemption for Members of Congress and their Staff.
“Some are lying, trying to mislead the public about the ObamaCare exemption for Congress–President Obama recently issued a special rule for Congress and Congressional Staff to get a special subsidy to purchase health insurance on the ObamaCare exchange, unavailable to every other American at similar income levels. That’s an exemption plain and simple,” said Vitter.
On the 05 August The Wall Street Journal reported the President intervenes to give Members (of Congress) and their staff a break.
Senator Vitter’s office provided a copy of the letter that Senator Landriu has put out denying any exemption for Member’s of Congress of ObamaCare.
