Cochran’s 42 years of influence summarized

The Washington Post caught up to Sen. Thad Cochran on Friday and wrote an extensive article, Cochran promotes D.C. influence to fend off tea party challenge, on issues ranging from longevity and compromise to ObamaCare, the Tea Party, and his opponent in the Republican Primary, state Sen. Chris McDaniel.

In the article, Cochran appeared to make a critical misstep by saying, “I think we need to monitor any federal programs that provide services and assistance to people who need help, and this is an example of an important effort by the federal government to help make health care available, accessible and affordable.”  Later on the campaign trail, Cochran’s staff clarified the statement by saying that the Senator though he was addressing the VA scandal and Cochran stated himself that he has always been against the law.

Cochran has continued to promote the political clout he has gained by 42 years in Washington.  Cochran says, “I’m convinced that if that phone call would have not been made to a Cabinet member, we wouldn’t have been able to keep the hospital open.”
