Treasurer Kennedy: Medicaid eating Louisiana alive, Jindal pushing problem to next governor
Written by 

Jindal-kennedy-crouereTOPS, Medicaid in Louisiana hitting the bottom, the current Governor Bobby Jindal continuing the high cost of healthcare in Louisiana and pushing the problem off to the next administration—those were some of the topics discussed today in a WGSO radio interview with Treasurer John Kennedy.

 Radio talk show host Jeff Crouere interviewed Kennedy Tuesday morning.  The treasurer is running for re-election.   

In part I of the radio interview, Kennedy discussed his desire to keep the TOPS program which he says is helping university students stay in Louisiana and assisting them to obtain a higher education degree.  Kennedy said there are some in the legislature who want to change TOPS program but he would want them to leave it alone.

The topic turned to the substantial cost of Medicaid in Louisiana.  The Treasurer said the costs are going to “eat us alive”, the Medicaid budget is skyrocketing and the state is having a difficult time paying for it.  During the interview, Kennedy said the problem is that some recipients are abusing the program and the Louisiana taxpayers are absorbing the costs.

Closing out this segment of the radio broadcast, Kennedy expressed his frustration with the Jindal administration’s unwillingness to improve the healthcare situation and its willingness to pass the problem off to the next governor.

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.
