As the days of his administration dwindle and the certainty of the numbers sets in, Gov. Bobby finally must come to the undeniable realization that his quest for the Republican nomination is a vanishing dream (actually, it was over long ago), he and his disciples of delusion must now turn their attention to their respective futures.
As talk of the state’s operating budget dominates Louisiana political discourse, highlighting how a failure of will by policy-makers makes this an annual exercise in contortion, an enterprising piece reminds how the capital outlay budgeting process suffers from the same.

In his quixotic quest to run for president, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal has been out of the state 50% of the time in recent months. He’s rarely been visible in his home state, but voters are getting to know him far and wide in the likes Iowa, New Hampshire, Florida, and numerous other states with early presidential primaries. So the question is — who’s in charge when the Louisiana Governor is on the campaign trail?
Yesterday, former lawmaker and top Republican official Ben Bagert called for Governor Bobby Jindal’s resignation on the Jim Engster Show, citing neglect for his home state in favor of a hyper-partisan national agenda, specifically Grover Norquist’s Americans for Tax Reform, and shady budget practices.

The citizens of Louisiana have to make a decision. Is education necessary? If so, then fund it!

Also, acknowledge you are sacrificing your children on an altar of “fiscal mismanagement.”
The Bobby Jindal administration wants the public to know that an opinion piece in Forbes today is supporting Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal's plan to eliminate refundable tax credits this legislative session due to the $1.6 billion dollar budget shortfall.
There are many who are now disallusioned with Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal these days. Some have questioned his policies and his honesty on many issues. Many of those who are doing so are members of the media, democrats, independents and yes, even some republicans. Lately, the anger towards him has become more shrill than ever. In part, he is getting blamed for mismanagement of Louisiana's budget while trying to take on the worlds' woes.
Why go to all this trouble? Peripherally attached to a budget somewhat contortioned, perhaps the most convoluted item of Gov. Bobby Jindal’s fiscal year 2016 effort is a request (not actually in the budget) that cuts in state monies for higher education could be offset partially by an extra fee put upon students, the cost of which would be claimable as a tax credit, financed by an increase in cigarette taxes. Why such a Rube Goldberg device when there’s a far less complex answer to bolster higher education’s resources?
