Jindal, Landrieu, Vitter Disagree Over University Med Center Funding Withdrawal
Written by 

Jindal-LandrieuDespite recent developments on Thursday that federal financing might not be available for the University Medical Center in New Orleans which is under construction, Republican Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal and Democratic New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu insist that nothing has changed and the recent events do not slow down the construction process.

 In a July 7th letter, JP Morgan Heatlh care and Housing Funding Corporation notified HUD that it was withdrawing a pre-application for financing on behalf of the University Medical Center. The state then withdrew its application with the U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development for federal financing which could mean that financing would be much more expensive without the federal involvement.

Meanwhile, an opponent of the current large scope and size of the plan, Sen. David Vitter, R-LA, said "the state's HUD application was withdrawn to avoid having HUD reject it." 

Later on Thursday, during a press conference to sign historic tax credits legislation passed this spring, Jindal and Landrieu responded to questions regarding the funding news and contend that there is no change in the project.


"What happened today was not consequential. What happened today doesn't change anything," said Mayor Landrieu.

Jindal said that “nothing has changed today”.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
