House Health Care Bill Passes… Joe Cao (R-New Orleans) Only GOPer to vote for It!

Filed under: Healthcare,New Orleans,Politicians — Morwen Madrigal @ 4:14 am

The House’s version passed (not perfect, but it’s a start) and the GOP Rep for Orleans and much of Jefferson was the only one of his party to vote for it. I applaud his courage and desire to find ways to help his constituents to obtain health care.

Now if I can just convince him to become an Independent… I don’t trust Dems very much, and from what I see of the playing feild down here for Demos for the seat, he might very well be my choice next year. (That’s right… I am now no longer a Demo. I will vote independently of both parties for the most Progressive person possible)

Is LSU Lying About the Condition of Charity Hospital After the Flood?

LSU claims that Charity Hospital suffered greater than 50% damage due to the Federal Flood of New Orleans, 8/29/05, as a justification for their abandoning the hospital in order to build a new medical complex in Lower Mid-City and thus displacing 20+ blocks of homes and businesses (not counting what the new VA Hospital will displace if LSU’s dream is realized).

Recently date-stamped photos emerged of Charity in the weeks after the Flood- here.

LSU is lying about the scenario as per the condition of Charity post-Flood. The tax-payers will have to cough up $100s of millions more so that LSU can get the glittering complex they have wanted for years and millions more to destroy a Historic neighborhood.

Just tell LSU- “NO”!
