Star Wars: Jindal vs. C.B. Forgotston, force of status-quo
Written by 

darth-vaderMay the force NOT be with you.

Governor Jindal's point person on taking on the opponents of his tax swap plan, Mike Reed, Deputy Secretary of Communications has once again taken on the "forces of evil" or perhaps the "forces of the status-quo", in this case, well-known blogger and attorney, C.B. Forgotston.  

Reed, has used the term "forces of the status-quo" as a continuing refrain in describing those who have expressed criticism of the Governor's tax reform plan. 

Here is Reed's latest: 

For today’s example of how special-interests are fighting Governor Jindal’s tax reform plan, please take a listen to local blogger and Jindal critic C.B. Forgotston this morning on the Moon Griffon radio show.  C.B. doesn’t hold back in his support for the lobbyist loopholes in the current tax code, and is amazed that Governor Jindal would want to eliminate them.  

·         C.B. Forgotston: “…[L]obbyist services will be taxed under this, and it will be 5.88%.  They have never been taxed before, will be taxed now. And think of this, would you hire a Louisiana lobbyist who can’t get themselves exempt to help you get exempt? . . . That’s pretty poor . . .” 

What a perfect example of the forces of the status-quo fighting to protect the current complicated and unfair Louisiana tax code.  

Listen Here:

 

C.B. Forgotston Appeared On The Moon Griffon Radio Show This Morning And Attacked The Jindal Tax Plan For Proposing To Remove Tax Loopholes For Lobbyists. C.B. FORGOTSTON: “Moon, let me tell you a funny thing about lobbyists.  Lobbyists are taxed, lobbyist services will be taxed under this, and it will be 5.88%.  They have never been taxed before, will be taxed now. And think of this, would you hire a Louisiana lobbyist who can’t get themselves exempt to help you get exempt?”  MOON GRIFFON: “Haha, no.”  FORGOTSTON: “That’s pretty poor, and I have had a lobbyist tell me that, he said, ‘I don’t know how we can ask people to hire us if we can’t even get ourselves exempt.’”  (Moon Griffon Radio Show, 3/25/13)

It shouldn’t be a surprise that Louisiana has endured adverse credit rating changes since edwards midDemocrat Gov. John Bel Edwards assumed office, completing a downgrade trifecta last week.
