Shouldn’t have left the histiocytoma farm bill

Reps. Charles bous­tany (R) and jeff landry (R) “took sev­er­al swipes at each oth­er.” landry “lobbed sev­er­al at­tacks at bous­tany, paint­ing him­self as the more con­ser­vat­ive rep­res­ent­at­ive and bous­tany as a wash­ing­ton in­sider. He said job growth is the na­tion’s most ser­i­ous prob­lem.” the “oth­er three can­did­ates” — phys­i­cian bry­an bar­rilleaux (R), atty ron richard (D) and navy vet/truck driver jim stark (L) — “in­stead set their crosshairs on the es­tab­lish­ment rather than at­tack­ing each oth­er. They echoed the sen­ti­ment that the cur­rent con­gress­men aren’t do­ing enough to solve the dis­trict’s prob­lems.”

High­lights from the can­did­ate for­um, writ­ten in al­pha­bet­ic­al or­der by can­did­ate last name in­clude: bous­tany “touted his ties to paul ry­an “by say­ing he’s worked with” him “to tackle the fed­er­al gov­ern­ment’s debt.” bous­tany said he helped stop a pro­posed $60B “tax in­crease on oil and gas pro­du­cers”: and said he “has ex­per­i­ence ‘deal­ing with a di­vided gov­ern­ment’ and has ‘ac­tu­ally got­ten laws passed to pro­tect this dis­trict.’” he also talked about his role in writ­ing the 2008 farm bill. Bous­tany: “you need some­body who is go­ing to roll up their sleeves and do the hard histiocytoma dog removal cost work and not simply play polit­ics.

Bar­rilleaux “cri­ti­cized con­gress for re­cess­ing un­til after the elec­tions with un­fin­ished busi­ness.” he said he op­poses the af­ford­able care about and “de­scribed him­self as a ‘pro-life con­ser­vat­ive.’” he wants to re­form cam­paign fin­ance and noted “he is not ac­cept­ing any cam­paign con­tri­bu­tions be­cause money is a ma­jor force of cor­rup­tion in wash­ing­ton.” bar­rilleaux said “the ma­jor prob­lem fa­cing the dis­trict is the ‘lack of con­fid­ence that our gov­ern­ment is rep­res­ent­ing us well,’ which he said could be fixed through cam­paign fin­ance re­form.” bar­rilleaux: “for any of these in­cum­bents to come here and tell us they’re get­ting real res­ults but at the same time tell us we’re fa­cing real prob­lems and this fisc­al cliff, is ir­re­spons­ible.”

Richard “be­lieves in the amer­ic­an and uni­on dream of a fair wage, a safe work­place and fair trade.” he thinks rice farm­ers “need a price-pro­tec­tion mod­el that works for mul­ti­year de­clines.” richard: “if you want someone who is will­ing to sit down, put my ideo­logy and big, fat ego aside, then you need to send me to con­gress.”

Stark said he doesn’t identi­fy with a party and rather “uses the con­sti­tu­tion as a guide.” he prefers the fed­er­al gov­ern­ment to stay “out of the way.” stark wants to “get rid of ag­ri­cul­tur­al sub­sidies all to­geth­er” and he wants “in­dus­tri­al hemp to be ad­ded to” LA’s eco­nomy. He “op­poses the fed­er­al re­serve’s quant­it­at­ive eas­ing” and said “con­gress should stop the pres­id­ent from en­ga­ging in for­eign con­flicts without ap­prov­al.” stark: “the solu­tions to every single one of our is­sues can be found in our con­sti­tu­tion and with more free­dom, not less,” ( per­sac la­fay­ette daily ad­vert­iser, 9/26).
