Here’s some video from today’s Senate Health And Welfare Committee hearing on SB 96, Sen. Ben Nevers’ bill to expand Medicaid in Louisiana. That committee killed the bill on a 6-2 vote.
Our readers by now know that Sen. Yvonne Dorsey-Colomb is a crook.
Here’s an indication she’s also a clown. Dorsey-Colomb brags about having 25 years of legislative experience, and yet she thinks the runup in federal debt during the Obama administration is “inflation,” and she also thinks poor people pay taxes because they’re paying sales taxes at the grocery store – when grocery items are exempted from Louisiana sales tax. The latter is a pretty inexcusable error considering the issue of sales tax exemptions was revisited in some detail just last year when Gov. Bobby Jindal proposed to eliminate the state income tax in exchange for a hike on sales taxes.
Two and a half decades of legislative experience produces this level of performance. Enjoy…
