Politics blog: U.S. Sen. David Vitter schedules hearing on Obamacare in Bossier City _lowres

Advocate staff photo by MATTHEW HINTON--U.S. Sen. David Vitter (R-La.) talks to reporters before he goes to see the movie "The Interview" at Chalmette Movies in Chalmette, La. Monday, Dec. 29, 2014. The independent theater is one of about 300 theaters nationwide showing the film that larger theater chains refused to show after threats from a hacking group called the Guardians of Peace. The film shows a fictional assassination plot of North Korean dictator Kim Jung-un and the FBI stated the hacking group had connections to North Korea, which the North Korean government denies. In a bit of political theater of his own Vitter sent out message stating "We all need to stand up to the North Korean dictatorship and in defense of freedom, and so I encourage you to see "The Interview." North Korea canÕt have any reason to think that bullying and intimidation will threaten American principles like freedom of speech. Please keep in mind the "R" rating. I've heard itÕs very crude."

The Affordable Care Act -- also known as Obamacare -- will be the center of attention at a meeting in Bossier City this week.

U.S. Sen. David Vitter helped organize the meeting, which is being held by the U.S. Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship.
