Quote of the Week [12/1/2009] 

  "You hate to look a gift horse in the mouth and in this case, it was a Democrat, Mary Landrieu, who is an ideological foe, who came through with the bacon. ... I think the governor is biting his lip and saying, 'I want the money, and because of that I'm not going to criticize the politics that led to the money.'" — Baton Rouge political analyst Jim Engster, explaining why Gov. Bobby Jindal and his administration have been silent on Landrieu's vote to move health care discussion to the Senate floor. Landrieu's vote came after provisions were added to the bill to ensure more than $100 million in additional funds for Louisiana's Medicaid program.
