LA Democratic Party Seeks to Blow Up Bipartisan Cooperation at Capitol

Leaders of the Louisiana Democrat Party yesterday attempted to blow up any hope for bipartisan cooperation by attacking Republican House leaders, including newly-elected Speaker Taylor Barras and Appropriations Chairman Cameron Henry.

"Speaker Barras has conducted himself with great professionalism in a sprit of bipartisan cooperation since his election," LAGOP Chairman Roger Villere said. "He appointed Democrats to head important committees in the House and has had an open door policy to speak with members across the aisle. Today's attacks are an attempt to bring Washington-style politics to Louisiana.”

“Further, Chairman Henry’s insistence that the budget solution include cuts and reforms should be applauded and is deserving of bipartisan support as Governor Edwards promised the same during his campaign."
