According to the Louisiana Democratic Party, the much-discussed SAVE budget gimmick which would balance the budget through a gimmick, allowing Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal to claim no taxes were raised during the ongoing legislative session is losing ground.
Louisiana Democratic Party thanked democrats and republicans serving in the House Ways and Means Committee today for killing a bill that would have helped plug a major budget hole but at the same time, would give Bobby Jindal protection in his goal to be tax neutral as he ramps up his probable presidential run.
Seven democrats and 3 republicans voted to defeat the legislation. The republicans were Joel Robideaux (chairman of the committee), Eddie Lambert and Thomas Willmott.
It rather shows the depths that Louisiana’s Democrats currently plumb when their talking points consist of over-the-top complaints about Republican gubernatorial news releases and asking GOP legislators whether these opponents consider them murderers.
Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal lashed out at Rand Paul yesterday for a comment he made on Morning Joe.

The Louisiana Democratic Party has continued to take swipes at Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, presumably, to weaken him in their efforts to seek negotiating opportunities as he enters into his final legislative session starting Monday.
The debate over what some people say will be a $1.4 billion budget shortfall, cuts and higher education (once again), and a governor using state money to help launch a presidential run can be heard often at the state capitol in Baton Rouge. Today, that conversation is being heard overseas, in London.

Preliminary voting statistics reveal that U.S. Rep. Bill Cassidy, the Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate, garnered 78% of the white voters while incumbent Democratic U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu received only 22%.
In the wake of a massive loss and the defeat of the only statewide elected Democrat, the state leader of the party is delightfully delusional about what happened.
The Louisiana Democratic Party has released a video that compares the record of President Barack Obama and that of Bobby Jindal while linking the Louisiana Governor to the Republican US Senate candidate Bill Cassidy.
