Jindal The Idiot

This is absolutely crazy — Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal is turning down $90 million in stimulus funds to extend unemployment benefits. WTF? Louisiana has the second highest poverty rate in the nation, and the Governor is refusing to take money to help these people. His explanation — that Louisiana businesses might end up some day having to pay for these benefits via higher taxes — is incredulous. The federal benefits run for three years, and when they run out the state can simply do nothing, just let the program cease to exist. There’s zero implied tax liability here. This is “free” money, and Jindal is turning it down. This is criminal. Hello Louisiana — this jerk of a Governor should be recalled from office immediately.
