Landrieu Stands with Obama 97% of the Time
It's a match that's meant to be. This Valentine's Day President Obama is on a mission - to identify those Senate Democrats who align just right with his liberal agenda.
Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) may appear a bit shy at first, touting her "independence" from President Obama and Harry Reid. But it turns out that according to our friends atElectionHarmony.com - she and President Obama are a near perfect match!
Let's have a look at the shared likes of President Obama and Mary Landrieu:
Supporting policies that drive up the cost of energy?
Higher taxes on workers and middle-class families?
More reckless government spending & higher debt?
Jeopardizing Louisianians' current health care plans and doctors?
The ElectionHarmony.com results show a true connection! Mary Landrieu's partisan record is a near-perfect match for President Obama. Unfortunately that means Landrieu isn't such a good match for the majority of Louisianians. Time after time Mary Landrieu has consistently championed President Obama's agenda, voting with him an eye opening 97% of the time in 2013 (despite Obama's low approval rating with Louisiana voters).
It turns out that despite all of her talk, Mary Landrieu is part of the most partisan Senate majorities in recorded history. According to CQ, Senate Democrats voted unanimously on 52% of the party unity votes in 2013 – an all-time high for either party in either chamber. That places Landrieu high atop Barack Obama's match list.
"Mary Landrieu and Barack Obama are near perfect together, sharing a liberal agenda and agreeing an eye-popping 97% of the time," said NRSC Press Secretary Brook Hougesen."There's not a single person in Louisiana that agrees with everything that President Obama does, but Mary Landrieu comes closest, putting her at odds with workers, families and seniors in Louisiana. Mary Landrieu's record shows she can't be trusted to stand up for Louisianians."
