Jindal wants to cut 2,000 people from working. That's 2,000 who won't be paying any income tax or any other tax except to the federal government at the end of the year. Cut your salary Mr. Jindal. Along with the high dollar people you have hired to just run their mouth. I bet two of your high dollar cohorts probably total at least 1 million together in perks and salary. You all won't take pay cuts or do away with your perks, because the social lives you lead might hurt your kiddies going to Tulane, or that free house the taxpayers of louisiana are paying for or those expensive vacations your families take. Yet, you expect the lower class to take the brunt of it all and scrounge for what ever they can afford. I guess that is the upbringing of rich India people. Cast society. Along with the aristocrats here in the South. You don't kick people who are alredy down even farther and expect them to smile for the good of the state, when State legislatures and others are still going strong on no pay cuts or cutting their perks out. Let's add up all the politicians perks and salaries first and see what it adds up to and make the cuts there. You think the little person will scream the loudest?
