Landrieu Was For Public Health Care Before She Was Against It

Senator Mary Landrieu announced Tuesday that she opposes a public health care option which would compete with private health insurers. But that comes only two months after she wrote a personal letter of support for public health care to Health Care for America Now (HCAN).

The Huffington Post gathered campaign finance figures and discovered that throughout her congressional career, Landrieu has raised $1,668,693 from health insurance and health care interests -- broken down by:
"Health professionals" $607,616
"Insurance" $401,731
"Hospitals/Nursing Homes" $269,645
"Pharmaceuticals/Health Products" $224,696 and
"Health Services/HMOs" $165,005
