Hey look, it’s “Democrat” Mary Landrieu, once again doing her best to fulfill the “how high” requirement when the oil industry commands her to jump. This time around it’s opposition to the jobs bill.
Some are unhappy about the specific types of companies, particularly the oil industry, that would lose tax benefits. “I have said for months that I am not supporting a repeal of tax cuts for the oil industry unless there are other industries that contribute,” said Senator Mary L. Landrieu of Louisiana.
For Louisiana, the difference between this “Democrat” and a Republican in that seat is that a Republican doesn’t pretend to be on the side of the worker while doing the corporation’s dirty work.
