    I'd really love to see someone ask Jindull about his "government needs to step aside and let people do for themselves" mentality, and why he is constantly begging for money from the Federal Government.

      The nine most wonderful words in the English language are, "I'm from the government and I'm here to help."

      has to have authorization from the governor of these states to do some things

      I believe that the federal government is doing all it can within the law.
