BREAKING: Rep. Charles Boustany of LA to Deliver GOP Response on Health Care

GOP Sources tell me Rep Charles Boustany , a third term congressman and a cardio-thoradic surgeon, will deliver the Republican response to President Barack Obama’s health care speech tomorrow night.

Like Bobby Jindal (whose response to Obama’s State of the Union speech landed with a thud in January) Boustany is a health care expert from Louisiana.

But GOP sources say he'll avoid Gov. Jindal's fate: “Boustany is a common-sense conservative who can communicate our vision for health care reform, and how we want to work with the President to do what the American people want: lower health care costs. He’s also led the effort on behalf of House Republicans to reach out to the other side of the aisle to find real bipartisan reform. We’re pleased with this David-Goliath matchup tomorrow night.”
