Al Sharpton had a long segment on our Medicaid campaign. He captured how outrageous it is that Gov. Bobby Jindal is blocking health care for hundreds of thousands of his constituents—while his state tries to force down our billboard criticizing him.
Sure, you might expect to hear a sympathetic take on MSNBC. But this story has earned attention from some unexpected folks too. A high-profile conservative legal scholar, Eugene Volokh, published a sharp piece in The Washington Post today about our standoff with Gov. Jindal's administration that concluded: "I expect the case to be promptly thrown out of court; and I hope [Lieutenant Governor Jay] Dardenne gets some political grief from voters for trying to suppress criticism this way."
We're working night and day to keep the heat on—not just in Louisiana but in all the Republican-led states where millions of Americans are going without the health care they deserve. This fight will continue.....After all, as the saying goes Freedom Cannot Defend Itself, so Someone Must Defend it.
