Poll: Should Louisiana Legislature Override Expected Jindal Veto Of Tobacco Tax
Written by 

Louisiana legislatureLouisiana Governor Bobby Jindal has vowed to veto what he calls a cigarette tax. The Louisiana legislature has voted to extend the 4-cents per pack tax that has been called a “temporary” tax.

Jindal considers the tax to be a “new tax” but the legislature deems the action to be an extension of an existing tax, not a new tax.

 Jindal has made a plea to his fellow republicans not to override his veto which the Louisiana legislature is set to do.  It requires a 2/3 vote in the legislature to override the veto.

If the legislature overrides Jindal’s veto, it will only be the third time since the enactment of the 1974 constitution and is deemed to be a major embarrassment to a sitting governor.

Currently, Republicans control both the Louisiana House and the Senate.

Poll: Assuming Governor Jindal vetoes the cigarette tax extension, should the legislature over-ride the Governor’s veto.

quin hillyer health 5Have the conservative Freedom Caucus and advocacy organizations such as Freedom Works and Heritage Action "screwed the American people"?

That's the feeling expressed by at least one long-time conservative Republican, who, as millions of others were outraged by the destruction of the Obamacare "repeal" and replacement, on Friday.

comey sitThe GOP will likely claim that the bogus “ Assisted suicide counseling” will still be covered since Obamacare remains the law of the land. That’s good news for GOP legislators who planned on voting “yes” on its repeal. The rich, also, should be happy the old law remains because they have wounds that need tending after the mega tax breaks for them that were inserted in Trumpcare went the way of leeching. The failure to repeal, of course, is the Democrats fault. Trump said so, but he has reason to be happy, too. The health care debacle managed, if just for an hour, or two, to deflect attention away from Russia.
