KELLY: Mary Landrieu has come out tonight and basically said that Louisiana knows better than to believe you. They say — this is the full quote. She pins it on the Koch brothers who put this AFP ads (ph) and you are in one of them — “Louisianans know better than to believe what they hear from the out of state billionaire Koch brothers,” and she goes on to say that the Affordable Care Act does not affect tri-care or VA health care services. She’s calling into question your claims.
SCHIFF: You know, I’m glad you’re bringing that up. We’re not saying that my veteran benefits were somehow lessened. I don’t receive any type of veteran benefits. I don’t qualify for tri-care, nor do I qualify for VA benefits. So, that is not even an issue. The issue is that I had a plan that I liked, that I could afford. It was cancelled because of ObamaCare and now, I have to pay more.
Mary L. Landrieu is one of the most vulnerable Democrats in the U.S. Senate, and her chances of reelection this fall could come down to her ability to turn out African American voters like Barbara Brown.
