Senator Mary Landrieu is one of our most expensive politicians. You do remember her invoice to taxpayers for her vote on Obamacare? Landrieu demanded a $300,000 payment to Medicaid for Louisiana before she would vote for the program. That noxious deal became known as the Louisiana Purchase and, along with a similar bribe dubbed "the Nebraska Cornhusker Kickback" to Sen. Ben Nelson, were the deciding votes which allowed the Bill to pass.
But she's an award winner! Citizens Against Government Waste has just nominated her 2013 Porker of the Year for her refusal to support reform of "the antiquated and costly federal sugar program in the Senate version of the 2013 Farm Bill." Her arrogant response to her critics: “Yes, the price of a candy bar might be a penny or two higher, but who needs cheaper candy bars? No one.”
Senator, what we actually need are cheaper politicians.
