Lines drawn differently in Southeast Louisiana Hospital debate
The battle to save Southeast Louisiana Hospital near Mandeville is playing out as a familiar tale, but with a somewhat unfamiliar twist. As in many political fights during lean times, the lines are drawn over just how far the state's responsibility to meet the public need goes. What's unusual in this case is that both camps are populated with Republicans, a phenomenon that's rendered many of the typical ideological arguments moot. Leading the fight are high-profile politicians who have, until now, considered themselves staunch Jindal allies.
