With Louisiana on the precipice of budgetary collapse, with Universities on the brink of going dark, Louisiana's Governor John Bel Edwards, who has been in office for less than two months, is calling the siren cry.

With fewer than 48 hours to go until the end of the special legislative session, Governor John Bel Edwards outlined the drastic cuts that are scheduled to take place in the areas of health care and higher education if the legislature does not bring in additional revenue to solve the current budget shortfall.  For the current fiscal year, Louisiana faces a more than $940 million deficit that must be addressed by Wednesday, Mar. 9 at 6 p.m.  For the fiscal year that begins on July 1, Louisiana faces a more than $2 billion deficit. Gov. Edwards has offered the only comprehensive plan to solve the budget deficits that includes both spending cuts and asks for a balance of revenue raising measures from businesses and individuals. 

bombWe’re less than two days away from an exploding time bomb.

The minutes are ticking away.  If the Louisiana legislature does not fix a budget hole, as big as the width of the state, it reportedly will be forced to shut down Universities and healthcare centers, kick students out from their semester classes and perhaps, even, bid farewell to the purple and gold for this autumn, the LSU Tigers.

I am very familiar with questions of retirement, having made the decision to ride off gracefully into the sunset several years ago. For the youngsters out there, before you reach such a monumental decision, have a plan for what you are going to do. Watching FoxNews or CNN until the cocktail hour is not a plan. Which brings us to Peyton Manning, who wisely took the advice of this column and its multitude of readers and decided to retire from the NFL. So now the question is: “What’s he going to do?”

Ph.D., it seems really does stand for “piled higher and deeper” in some quarters.

And Jeff Sadow, Ph.D., proves it in spades.

After all, no self-respecting snake oil salesman would attempt to sell what Sadow was hawking in Sunday’s Baton Rouge Advocate.

edwards presser picHouston, Louisiana, has one “helluva” budget problem and systems are going to shut down fast and almost immediately unless the course is corrected, immediately.

Ooh, Noo!!! Mr. Bill!!

I saw Saints GM Mickey Loomis at the driving range the day before he headed to Indianapolis for the NFL Combine. The league's annual exercise in poking, prodding, digging and jabbing the latest crop of surefire, can’t miss pheee-noms ideally will turn every moribund franchise into winners. Loomis presides over the local chapter of moribundity, a team that has missed the playoffs three of the past four years. 

 

trump engineAt a speech in Salt Lake City yesterday, 2012 Republican Party presidential nominee and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney laid out his reasons why Donald Trump should never receive the Republican endorsement. According to Romney, Trump is a “phony” and a “fraud,” who would lose to Hillary Clinton in the fall election. 

hb122The Louisiana Senate Finance Committee has temporarily solved the current fiscal budget crises by approving an amendment to HB 122, that sends the appropriations bill forward.

 

trump foxToday, former Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney addressed the Donald Trump candidacy by giving remarks on the state of the 2016 presidential at the Hinckley Institute of Politics at University of Utah.

romney trumpToday, Mitt Romney, in an extraordinary event, spoke to the nation about his concerns about Donald Trump becoming President of the United States.  As a result, twitter (as well as other social media) has exploded with responses, in reaction. Romney defied conventional politics (and perhaps conventional wisdom) by attacking Trump this late in the campaign and by breaking the 11th commandment spoken by Ronald Reagan, not to attack another member of the party.  

 trump2On Wednesday, Donald Trump presented his healthcare reform plan which his campaign claims will make America Great again.

Included in the plan are repealing Obamacare, allowing individuals to buy policies across state lines, block grants, healthcare savings accounts.  

brokeThe attempt to normalize Louisiana’s higher rate of spending into permanency and taxation to support it continued with Senate action in the Legislature’s special session, begging for a counter-reaction to stop this unsavory development.
