There are three certainties in Republican political life in America-lower taxes on wealthy results in prosperity for all, one must believe in guns for all, and one must never admit to making a mistake since to do so is a sign of weakness. Governor Bobby Jindal a few months ago was regarded as a possible presidential candidate in the 2016 election. Alas, that was before he broke commandment number one by saying Republicans must “stop being the stupid party.” After all, if one is stupid, why let the world know you are.
Since he was a Republican it was necessary to support measures that benefit those with money. He proposed eliminating the state income tax and replacing it with a 56% increase in the sales tax. I hate to inform Bobby, but any intelligent person in Louisiana knows that this “reform” benefited those with wealth and INCREASED TAXES ON THOSE WITHOUT.
Latest poll figures indicate Bobby is only supported by 36% of inhabitants of his fair state. I hate to inform Bobby but there are many more middle and lower income folk in this nation than those with millions. Stupid, it is the voting math!!
