I don't know Jindal on a personal level. Not looking to be friends.You are an very uninformed person,if you are looking for dirt on Bobby Jindal you shall look for a long time and find nothing.I happen to know for a fact that Bobby is a born again
Christian and a very honest loving caring man.I am not saying Bobby Is perfect cuse he is only a man,but he does try he very best to be fair on all issues,there will always be people around to agree with his policies ar disagree with his poloicies,that is why our fore fathers died and fought in so many wars,so people like us can have choices.
KLFY thought that the Treasurer should explain, and they gave him an opportunity to do so. If you would have watched the news, you would have learned that Jindal's budget maybe built on a sink hole. If they don't sell the Gov't bldgs. for the amount they want (maybe inflated amount) and the LSU Medical leases to the private industry are NOT all signed, there would be further budget cuts in the middle of the year (kinda how W. Bush ran the country's economy into the ground). If this comes to pass, who will be left with the HUGE tax bill, you guessed it, YOU and ME!
Keep in mind, if they changed to sales tax (rather than income tax), the poor and middle class will be HIT HARD!(Keep in mind, the rich (who got their millions/billions off the backs of underpaid hard working Americans) have plenty of money in the banks (here and abroad) to pay add'l sales tax, can you? What will you have to give up? If more is paid in taxes, less will be available for product/services purchases; will hit small businesses HARD. Is this the plan?
Another thing, the Repub judge reversed himself on Teacher Tenure in addition to the voucher program (payment coming from public school money). It would be different if the children receiving the vouchers were geniuses being sent to top learning facilities (that would advance the USA and should be Federally funded); that is NOT THE CASE. Taking money from Public schools leaves too many kids behind, including the poor geniuses!
A budget should be built on Facts NOT fiction!
