    Jindal says Republicans should offer own health plan - The Boston Globe

    WASHINGTON - Even as Republicans pummel President Obama’s health care proposals, some GOP leaders worry their party is being hurt by a Democratic counterattack: Where is your plan?

    Republican leaders chose not to draft their own comprehensive bill, focusing instead on attacking Democrats’ plans as too costly and bureaucratic. Some prominent Republicans now fear they are getting tagged as the “party of no,’’ and they want the GOP to offer more solutions to the nation’s health care problems.

    Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, a potential GOP presidential contender in 2012, said it’s time for Republicans “to pivot and say, in addition to emphasizing what we oppose, here are our proposals’’ for health care.

    The Republicans healthcare plan is to continue to receive BILLIONS in campaign contributions from the healthcare corporate lobbyists.

    The Blue Dog Democrats have the same plan.

    Did you know that the 5 Senators who have received the most in campaign contributions from health care and health insurance interests for 2010 are all Democrats: Harry Reid (D-NV) $401,350, Blanche Lincoln (D-AR) $353,400, Charles Schumer (D-NY) $289,650, Arlen Specter (D-PA) $282,010 and Ron Wyden (D-OR) $258,650?

    Did you know that 4 of the 5 Representatives who have received the most in campaign contributions from the health care and health insurance interests for 2010 are Democrats: Kendrick Meek (D-FL) $208,350, Frank Pallone Jr. (D-NJ) $197,950, Steny Hoyer (D-MD) $183,910, Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) $156,200 and Roy Blunt (R-MO) $137,100?

    Did you know that in the 2008 presidential campaign, Barack Obama accepted $19,439,769 in campaign contributions from health care and health insurance interests? That’s over $12 million more than John McCain ($7,393,547).

    Did you know that the 11 Republican candidates for president in 2008 received a combined total of $12,917,311 in campaign funds from health care and health insurance interests? That’s over $6.5 million dollars less than Mr. Obama accepted by himself.

    Did you know that Senator Baucus—the man tasked with writing the Senate health reform bill—accepted $1,171,025 in campaign funds from health care and health insurance interests in 2008 alone?

    Did you know that in 2008 54% of the campaign contributions given by health care and health insurance interests were given to Democrats and that in preparation for the 2010 elections, health care and health insurance interests have given 61% of their contributions to Democrats?

    Did you know that of the top 20 health companies to give money for the 2010election cycle, 19 have contributed more to Democrats than to Republicans and that one company, Doctors Hospital at Renaissance, has given 100% of its contributions to Democrats?

    Talk about biting the hand that feeds you...

    Unless of course this all some sort of dog and pony show designed to make it look as if Obama actually intended to keep a campaign promise and no one in that swamp ever expected a healthcare bill to pass...

    Jindal is a nobody, and he should just shut up and go away. His only Presidential hopefulness is in his own head.

    :lol: Quote this for 2012 when you'll say you're voting for him.

    By the way, they also say the same about Palin. Yet so many in the GOP would vote for her in 2012. :lol:
