    BREAKING: Rep. Charles Boustany of LA to Deliver GOP Response on Health Care Septemb

    BREAKING: Rep. Charles Boustany of LA to Deliver GOP Response on Health Care

    September 08, 2009 10:57 AM


    GOP Sources tell me Rep Charles Boustany, a third term congressman and a cardio-thoradic surgeon, will deliver the Republican response to President Barack Obama’s health care speech tomorrow night.

    Like Bobby Jindal (whose response to Obama’s State of the Union speech landed with a thud in January) Boustany is a health care expert from Louisiana.


    But GOP sources say he'll avoid Gov. Jindal's fate: “Boustany is a common-sense conservative who can communicate our vision for health care reform, and how we want to work with the President to do what the American people want: lower health care costs. He’s also led the effort on behalf of House Republicans to reach out to the other side of the aisle to find real bipartisan reform. We’re pleased with this David-Goliath matchup tomorrow night.”

    BREAKING: Rep. Charles Boustany of LA to Deliver GOP Response on Health Care - George's Bottom Line

    Ahhh, too bad no Jindal
    In all seriousness, I don't know this guy, but on paper he sounds like an excellent choice. Hope he has substantive things to say, and not fear-mongering takedowns. I'd like to hear what the GOPers WANT to do, not what they are against.


    ps - I hope I selected the right BN forum. I wasn't sure if it belonged in MSM b/c it's ABC, or blogs b/c it's George's 'Bottom Line' blog on ABC.

    Boustany is a damn good choice.

    Looks to me like you got the wrong forum, but who knows.

    I agree with your assertion. It seems they may've picked a good person to give the response considering his background. It needs to be a mix, both giving actual ideas that Republicans think would work better while also highlighting what they think is bad about Obama's, without going into too much hyperbole. Talking about government ineffectiveness, expanding debt, further government involvement in our lives, etc is fine. Using such stupid phrases as "Death Panels" would not be.

    Urgghh .... okay, maybe it won't be a good response then.
    Don't want to hear from someone who doesn't actually want to accomplish health care insurance reform ....

    The issue with the SCHIP bill was not the notion of having the program but the amount of money it was trying to expand, along with the people it was going to expand to (bringing the age of "Children" up to a rather ludicrous age imho).

    But yes, it makes him look much bigger and eviler not wanting the big wonderful mother government that taking care of the poor sick children, that big evil republican.
