    Bobby needs to put away Karl Rove's calculator....the one that does Republican math. As backwards and uneducated as we are in Louisiana (we are usually 49th out of 50 on just about every meaningful list), the taxpayers of Louisiana pay for every dime of that additional federal medicaid coverage even if Bobby refuses to use it. It just means that our federal tax dollars will go towards medicaid spending in all those yankee states instead of at least some of it being spent for the benefit of citizens of Louisiana. We are dumb, but not that dumb. Good luck with this one Bobby.

      the first wholly corporate owned state. We pay taxes.  Jindal takes our money and gives it to corporations, who sell us services that our taxes were supposed to pay for.  All the things we owned - schools, prisons, hospitals, public utilities and land - Jindal wants to give away and force us to rent them back.
      You know - sharecropping.  

      His pride and joy is the ALEC-driven playground to prison program.

      'Charter' schools plus private prisons make for a docile and uneducated labor pool.

      He's not ignorant - it's crass political money grubbing.

      Jesus died to save you from Yahweh.
