  •  Louisiana was once the home of Share Our Wealth (10+ / 0-)

    Huey Long's program to impose a steep tax on the wealthy so that wealth would be redistributed to everyone else.

    Today we have the exact reverse in that state, where the people get screwed out of hospice care and get dinged with a new sales tax so the rich and big business can keep more of their wealth.

    Tells you a lot about the South's political trajectory since the New Deal era.
