Jindal issues statement on Judge's order in DOJ voucher lawsuit
Written by 

jindal-obamaGovernor Bobby Jindal released a statement today following a hearing on the Obama Administration’s lawsuit against Louisiana’s school choice program.

 

The judge ordered the state and Department of Justice to work on a process that ensures the scholarship program is not funding segregated private schools. The state already ensures that state aid does not flow to segregated private schools. The Judge also said he does not want to disrupt the scholarship program and acknowledged data, which show the program does not have a negative impact on desegregation.

Governor Jindal said, “We’re pleased the Judge acknowledged that data provided by the state show the program does not have a negative impact on desegregation. We are also glad the Judge made clear he does not want to disrupt the scholarship program. The Judge has indicated he wants both parties to determine a process that does not allow the scholarship program to send state aid to segregated private schools. The state already ensures that the scholarship program does not provide state funds to segregated private schools.

 “We will draw a hard line against allowing the federal government to control the scholarship program and handpick schools for Louisiana’s children. No parent should have to get the President's permission – no matter which party that President is in – just to put their kid in the school of their choice.”

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.
