I was contemplating posting about my so-called Governor's reverse Robin Hoodism (abolishing income and corporate taxes in favor of staggering sales taxes increases) but then I read my friend Lamar White's recent PBJ post and decided to do a link and quote instead:
He is, without any question, the single worst Governor in contemporary Louisiana history, and in lightning fast time, Bobby Jindal has destroyed institutions, services, and programs that had taken generations for us to build, shuffling our tax dollars from those most in need to those who have the most, lining the pockets of his campaign contributors with public money while disingenuously lecturing the State about the need for austerity. Louisiana remains at the bottom of all of those “bad lists” that Jindal once liked to talk about, and because of Jindal’s personal political ambitions, he’s refused billions in federal aid and grant money. He thinks he’s sending a message to Washington and President Obama about how smart he is; he’s actually just telling the country that he’s an incompetent political hack who cares more about serving his financiers than his constituents.
Methinks Lamar deserved his 2012 Ashley Award:
