With less than two weeks left in the Louisiana legislative session, no issue is more important than the $1.6 billion budget deficit. While there remains a possibility that the legislature might find enough money with the combination of revenue-raisers and budget cuts that would satisfy all parties involved, there is also the possibility that the legislature will defy Gov. Bobby Jindal and his allegiance to Grover Norquist of the Americans for Tax Reform --and approve a budget that raises taxes without a corresponding and equal cut in government spending.

Gotta tell you. If you think Louisiana’s Governor and Presidential aspirant has gotten much from his latest transparent pandering to the religious right of Iowa, New Hampshire and “My religion is better than yours USA”, think again.
While it was named the “Marriage and Conscience Act” and while it purportedly promoted and protected religious freedom, it did so much more more and was for all purposes--defeated, for now.
After Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal announced his launching of his Presidential Exploratory committee, the Democratic National Committee expressed its deep concern over the upcoming Jindal bid--by releasing a statement from the National Press Secretary Holly Schulman.
The Louisiana Democratic Party and its supporters might not see eye-to-eye with Bob Mann, once again.
