Congressman Bill Cassidy believes it’s time for a Conservative voice to represent Louisiana. Cassidy, who is running against Mary Landrieu for Senate, joined us on 710 KEEL to talk about Obamacare, economic opportunities and state taxes.

Cassidy said that it’s time to move forward with the Keystone XL Pipeline and that Obama administration needs to expedite the project.

On tax reform, Cassidy admitted that “Governor Jindal tried to bring up a fair tax and the voters in Louisiana rejected it.” He added that Republicans have proposed a “bipartisan tax plan that would do away with some of the exemptions and lower the rates.”

Tackling a hot-button subject that has affected local residents, Cassidy also discussed Blue Cross/Blue Shield feud with the Willis-Knighton Physician Network. Cassidy pointed to Obamacare as a major factor in that fight.

"The president’s health care law awards big. It takes power from the patients, and it gives it to the insurance company, it gives it to the hospital, it gives it to the government.” — Bill Cassidy"

“The president’s health care law awards big. It takes power from the patients, and it gives it to the insurance company, it gives it to the hospital, it gives it to the government,” said Cassidy.

“You are going to have one or two big insurance companies and one or two big hospitals, and they are going to duke it out,” he concluded.
