    Actually, he kicked the can down the road a bit (does that sound familiar?).

    From the article linked above:

    The program will be maintained for the rest of the state's fiscal year, which ends June 30, with the use of "temporary bridge funding," according to a news release from the Department of Health and Hospitals. The release referred to that money as grant funding but did not specify where it came from or how reallocating it to hospice care would affect other state programs.
    Mr. Jindal and Mr. Boehner are singing from the same songbook.

    I haven't been here long enough to be considered a Kossack, does that mean that I'm just a sack?
