Congressman Bill Cassidy for U.S. Senate

Bill Cassidy, The Right Doctor at the Right Time

Congressman Bill Cassidy is a medical doctor, one who still sees patients when possible. His health care calling—a pursuit that I genuinely admire and respect—is very noble because it helps people in an extremely vital manner. Let’s review some of the history of this kind gentleman who imparts a gracious bedside manner:

Ø  He’s 57 years young, trim, and ready for the United States Sentate in so many ways.

Ø  Received his B.S. degree in 1979 from LSU.

Ø  Received his M.D. from LSU School of Medicine in 1983 (then practiced full-time for twenty-five years).

Ø  In 1998, he helped form a clinic that still provides low-income families with free dental, medical, mental, and vision care, through an innovative “virtual” approach that partners needy patients with doctors who provide care free of charge.  This long history of kind service demonstrates his commitment as a doer, rather than mere rhetoric.

Ø  After Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath, he led a group of health care volunteers to provide health care to victims of this calamity.

Ø  Partly due to this experience, he sought, and was elected to the Louisiana State Senate in 2006 as a Republican, where he served for about three years.

Ø  On November 4, 2008, he was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives, where he has served until now (just about six years). He is now more than ready for the U.S. Senate.

Ø  In the House, he opposed Obamacare vigorously, and in the Senate he will work to repeal it and replace it with kind, cost-effective, efficient healthcare. This work can only be done by Dr. Cassidy and the few other doctors in the Senate who have the depth of knowledge to work to enact a remedy to this failing Democratic Party monstrosity, with the goal of making excellent health care available to all.

Ø  He supports the Keystone XL Pipeline, which will provide thousands of good-paying jobs and opportunities for Louisianans and others throughout our nation.

Ø  He is opposed to out of control federal spending and seeks to lower taxes, particularly for small businesses and families.  He believes in sustainable safety nets.

Ø  He is passionate about improving education.

Ø  He was instrumental in reforming our nation’s flood insurance program and coastal restoration.  This is a key to New Orleans’s long-term, and the rest of Louisiana’s, survival and is one of his top priorities.

 

Dr. Cassidy’s wife is a retired doctor who is now in the process of forming a public charter school focusing on children with dyslexia.  She had a wonderful career, including Chief of Surgery at Earl K. Long Medical Center (1990-1992) and private practice, specializing in the treatment of breast cancer (1992-2006).  This outstanding couple has three children.

Dr. Cassidy has been a public servant all his life, as a doctor, state congressman, and federal congressman, and has served those of us in Louisiana and the nation with kindness, professionalism, compassion, empathy, honesty, and an ever increasing wisdom that makes him so special and ideal at this time.

From My Perspective: Why We MUST Vote FOR Bill Cassidy for the United States Senate

  I am a Caucasian who grew up in a segregated South in Mississippi and Georgia, but have lived in New Orleans since 1977. I have seen positive changes in the elevation of African Americans in the South and nationally. But there is much left to be done and it is my sincere belief that Republicans can do so to the benefit of everyone of every race.
    The tragedy of Senator Mary Landrieu’s democratic “leadership” of Louisiana African Americans is sad, very sad.  After eighteen years of being in Washington as a Senator, what has she accomplished for African Americans? I recently viewed a commercial about her lack of on-the-ground effects between her elections with a lot of African American support.  The commercial was followed by an African American panel of Louisiana-elected Republicans, yes, I said African American Republicans.
    It’s time for such leaders to speak out against Senator Landrieu and her record of voting with her fellow Democrats for hand-out programs, while supporting the Obama Administration in such vital areas as education.  In New Orleans, which is predominately African American, charter schools are helping in the long term the ones who need it most.  And what do the teacher unions and Obama Administration do about that?  They oppose these charter schools, a long term piece of the puzzle for New Orleans’ crime problems and potentially unemployable (if uneducated) African Americans.
    Education!  Education!  Education!
    This is a key in this Innovation Age and it will be more and more important as time goes by.  Senator Landrieu’s blind acceptance of the Obama Administration (97 percent of her 2013 votes and similar democratic votes over 18 years) have hurt the very ones to whom she seeks (and allegedly to whom she caters, though it is apparent that she isn’t truly helping them) as a liberal politician over and over and over again.  The panel I saw does not believe in the values of the Democratic Party, which foster dependency instead of education. Education is the only long-term solution and opportunity for everyone–African Americans, Caucasians, Hispanics, young and old, everyone.
    We must grow in fitness of our mind, body and “little piece of God.”  Teacher union bosses–with their first priority of union dues–adversely affect this process.  And guess who gets hoards of money and on-the-ground support from these union bosses?  You guessed it, the Obama Administration and Senator Landrieu.  Who suffers from that connection?  African Americans and Hispanics who can’t afford private schools, but have a real opportunity in the charter schools.
    I say it again.  The most important long-term issue is: Education! Education! Education!
    I stand in support of Congressman Bill Cassidy, M.D., who cares about the long-term plight of African Americans and all the other people of Louisiana. He knows education is a winner in the long-term and we must not let our Katrina gains in education and the leadership in that area slip away while sending Senator Landrieu  back to her “real” home, Washington D.C. (as news accounts have shown that she doesn’t really live in Louisiana).
    Senator Landrieu is a politician who represents the failed policies that go all the way back to the “Great Society.” Those policies have been disastrous for African American families–in the long term. The values of Dr. Bill Cassidy are in line with those African Americans on the panel who see the truth–dependency on food stamp type programs is fine and kind to an extent, but that certainly is not the long-term solution for our poor. Living from one government check to another doesn’t foster the values that give individuals real opportunities in their lives. It is also very detrimental to the recipient’s self-esteem. This dependency must be addressed in a kind way, a long-term way, through education and other positive long-term programs that really work.
    For New Orleans, I have a warning. The Katrina money is going to dry up and the path ahead must be far-sighted, especially in education.
    Again, I support Dr. Bill Cassidy for senate and his long-term identification with the real needs of all our Louisiana citizens, not least of which is education, education, education, a Republican priority.

Bill Cassidy for U.S. Senate: Good Reasons for Good Government

Today I have visited the Jefferson Parish Headquarters of Dr. Bill Cassidy for the U. S. Senate.  I obtained yard signs and have worked some on the phones combining a positive message for Dr. Cassidy and explaining Landrieu’s 97% voting record with President Obama and her key vote for Obamacare – a vote that she still says she would repeat.

Her lack of regret for her Obamacare vote demonstrates her audacity and lack of genuine respect for her Louisiana constituents.

We are a “red” state, one that supports sound fiscal policies and good government in general.  Senator Mary Landrieu, who votes 91 percent with the Democrats, is simply out of step with those of us who simply don’t support those liberal Democrats, over-spending, ever increasing regulations, and laws filled with immense complexities.

According to “The Debt Bomb”, our economy is being depressed in a significant way by our national debt and entitlements.  These problems should be addressed in a kind and wise manner.

Instead, the Obama Administration is totally anti-business and either unaware or worse in terms of solving the problems of the middle class and poor.

I genuinely believe that our young people, in particular, don’t want food stamps or handouts.  What they want is the same thing that the youth in India expressed in national elections – jobs and opportunities.

Sound and good government can help to promote free enterprise which, in turn, can help the young, middle class, all of us, through prosperity.

The government doesn’t produce any widgets.  It can, through Reganist policies, promote prosperity.  President Reagan had a serious, effective Council on Economic Advisors and he, himself, was an economics major in college.

We are in dire need of Dr. Bill Cassidy and a host of Republicans at all levels. Jobs and opportunity, freedom and liberty – these are the stuff of the American dream.  We are in The Innovation Age and we must innovate in government and throughout our lives while preserving values that allow us to gain wisdom.

President Obama and Senator Landrieu may be likeable and good campaigners, but neither one of them is wise, something that is direly needed in Washington – now!

Vote and support Dr. Bill Cassidy for the U. S. Senate!

Bill Cassidy Has the Momentum–Keep It that Way!

The momentum of the Mary Landrieu versus Bill Cassidy, M.D. campaign apparently has shifted toward Congressman Cassidy, M.D., a serious, educated, honest, wise, and capable public servant.  He’s ahead in the polls, money, and recent money raised, and he’s not a close associate of President Obama.  This is in contrast to Senator Landrieu, who has a $2.5 million home in Washington, D.C., leading to questions as to where she really lives (Washington, D.C. or Louisiana).
Senator Landrieu votes with the democrats (91 percent), President Obama (97 percent), and cast a deciding vote in allowing Obamacare.  Bill Cassidy opposed vigorously Obamacare, and stands by his decision after being able to read it completely.
When elected as a senator, Bill Cassidy could swing the senate to a republican majority, a critical need during the last two years of President’s Obama’s second term.  Senator Landrieu would perpetuate the incompetence and worse of the Obama Administration.
Do we want a senator with the intelligence, persistence, wisdom, capability, and honesty of Bill Cassidy?  Or do we settle for democratic politics as usual, full of taxing and spending as our national debt spirals upward and Senator Landrieu acts like she has a blank check book?
Fiscal responsibility is important, individually, and especially at all levels of government, including the federal government.  If we want the standard of living to rise in Louisana–and the rest of our beloved nation–we must realize that entitlements can’t be supported with runaway spending like Senator Landrieu has and will support (as she has her whole career).
Let’s increase the momentum and elect Bill Cassidy, M.D. in a telling blow against the worst president in my lifetime and perhaps the entire history of our country.
We each have an important role to play in changing history by voting for Bill Cassidy.  We can!  We must!
All this is especially critical for the middle class and poor–the ones that have been devastated by the Obama Administration supported by Senator Landrieu (97 percent).

Vote for a candidate with Wisdom, Honesty, and Conservatism!

If you want your vote to further promote a toxic atmosphere in Washington D.C., vote for Senator Landrieu.  She has been quite regularly (97 percent of the time) supporting the incompetent liberals surrounding our incompetent president.
To convert the Uniited States Senate to a republican majority and bring sense to the legislative arm of our federal government, vote and support Dr. Bill Cassidy for the U.S. Senate.  We Louisianans didn’t put President Obama in office.  Why in the world should we have Senator Landrieu voting for his agenda,including casting a key, deciding vote for Obamacare?
Vote for competence, wisdom, honesty, and conservatism in an enthusiastic break with the past; in short, vote and support Dr. Bill Cassidy!
