It was a very informative night in the sole, exclusive debate between U.S. Congressmen Jeff Landry and Charles Boustany tonight.  In the second part of tonight’s debate, they touched on the national debt ceiling, their votes while in Congress, the nation’s taxation problems and the negative feelings toward Congress.  Here’s the audio from the second half of the show.

We broadcast this debate live on Cajun Radio 1470/1290 AM this evening, thanks to our sister station, Newsradio KPEL 96.5 in Lafayette.  First off, here were the rules of the debate.  A coin toss determined who went first.

  • Candidate 1 gets asked the question and has :90 to answer.
  • Candidate 2 gets a :60 rebuttal.
  • Candidate 1 gets a :30 wrap-up.
  • Then, the process is reversed — Candidate 2 gets a stab at the same question for :90.
  • Candidate 1 gets a :60 rebuttal.
  • Candidate 2 gets a :30 wrap-up.
