Organization criticizes Jindal's budget for Louisiana
Written by 

louisiana_capitol_2One Louisiana-based organization not very pleased with Gov. Jindal's budget is the Louisiana Budget Project.

It's director, Jan Moeller, a former capital Bureau reporter, has issued the following statement:            

“This is an unbalanced budget that would kill jobs, raise payroll taxes on hard-working state employees and cut services essential to protecting the middle class and building a strong economy.   

 

“We are disappointed that the budget continues the irresponsible pattern of meeting ongoing needs by raiding state funds set aside for specific purposes. 

“Selling and privatizing state assets to meet the state’s obligations is a short-sighted approach that won’t provide the resources we need to invest in schools, transportation, public safety and other necessities for long-term growth." 

-Louisiana Budget Project Director Jan Moller.

Gov. Jindal submitted the Louisiana budget today and in a statement said, in part, "...we submitted a bold plan to protect higher education funding, give more school choices to families, put our pension system on a more sustainable path, and improve our business climate so that we can continue to make Louisiana the best place in the world to get a great education, pursue a rewarding career, and raise a family.”

Here is the press release from Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal's office.

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.
