When asked after her speech if the senator would support a public option under any circumstances, she said, “Very few, if any. I’d prefer a private market-based approach to any health care reform that would extend coverage.”
“I’d like to cover everyone — that would be the moral thing to do — but it would be immoral to bankrupt the country while doing so,” Landrieu said.
As to Cap and Trade, Landrieu said, “I’m not supporting that approach, but I’m open to hear modifications.”
“I’m going to be as strong a voice as I can that we still need oil and gas in America,” she said. “We don’t need less drilling. We need to do more as we move toward a greener grid.”
