Governor’s Medicaid expansion claims rebutted

Gov. John Bel Edwards just released an editorial titled “Louisiana is Making Progress,” and states in part that “by every metric, Medicaid Expansion was the right choice for Louisiana” as it has saved the state over $300 million, grown the economy by generating $3.6 billion of economic activity, and created 19,000 jobs. WOW!! Who knew we could reap these huge benefits by adding 470,000 residents to our Medicaid rolls. On top of this, the governor also noted that the Trump Administration praised Louisiana’s efforts to root out fraud within the Medicaid system. Say what??

​Kavanaugh and the President’s big mouth

The Kavanaugh Nightmare is almost over.
For almost three weeks Judge Brett Kavanaugh — a good father, a good man, a brilliant conservative legal jurist — has had his reputation permanently trashed and dragged through the mud by Democrats and their willing accomplices in the liberal media.
No political charge or fake allegation was too slimy for the Democrats, who were never going to vote to confirm Judge Kavanaugh.
They were interested only in destroying his life and keeping the Supreme Court’s ninth seat open until they got back in power in the Senate.

Political divide is no laughing matter

With all the vitriol in our politics — with all the disagreement that is tearing our country apart — we could all use some levity about now.
Here’s one joke I think we can all agree with:
A man wearing a ski mask jumped into the path of a well-dressed man and stuck a gun against his ribs.
“Give me your money,” said the mugger.
“You can’t do this,” said the well-dressed man. “I’m a U.S. congressman!”
“In that case,” said the mugger, “give me MY money!”
Being a parent is more challenging than ever. We live in a time when parents must censor C-SPAN!

Stopping violence: Listen to our police chiefs

Violence in our disadvantaged communities struck again in Baton Rouge, this time taking the life of LSU basketball player Wayde Sims who stepped in to a fistfight to defend his friend just off Southern University’s campus last Friday night.
Sims was loved by many in Baton Rouge as he was “a young athlete from the community, playing at our great university — with potential and what he represented.”
