Gov. Jindal is ignoring
his people´s needs

New Orleans Times-Picayune, by Editorial

With every decision Gov. Bobby Jindal makes, the message becomes clearer to hundreds of thousands of Louisiana residents who are uninsured: The state has no interest in helping you. Bruce Greenstein, secretary of Louisiana´s Department of Health and Hospitals, sent a letter Wednesday to federal health officials refusing to take part in the creation of a health care exchange where uninsured residents will be able to buy affordable policies from private insurers. The state´s decision won´t stop the creation of the exchange, which is part of President Barack Obama´s health care reform plan, but will leave it to the federal

The election is ten days passed and out come the knives for Governor Jindal. He must be a good choice for President.

Like the last election, the mainstream media and their buddies at the DNC are getting started on the destruction of the Republican field.

If zero´s plan is so damn good, WHY not set up federal offices to run the stupid thing? The new orleans picky un would have to support zero as they sold out their own people to the highest bedder many years ago.

There will not be affordable policies available through private companies. This will never, ever happen.

Sorry, forget to give a hat-tip to Limbaugh. Limbaugh opined the reason for Obamacles moving the date is to give time for all his pet newspaper editors to flay the governors who are refusing to take part in health care exchanges.

Fight, fight, fight!!!

The "STATE" cannot provide insurance for anyone without first taking the money from taxpayers who are having a tough enough time paying for their own insurance especially now the Obamacare is kicking and costs are rising.

Enough of this coddling lifestyles of the non-workers or content part time 8-16 hours per week workers just enough to get big Earned Income and child tax credits refunded on average of $4,500.

I think some people really do respond without one clue what is in the article. Jindal is simply not putting his rubber stamp on Obamacare because his state, like all states, is bankrupt. Louisiana shoudl not be made to pay one cent of this monstrosity. If this is what Obama and his takers want then the Fed should foot the whole bill. The exchanges will be around a max of 10 years anyway as the private insurance industry will be destroyed by Obamacare so why waste huge amount of state funds putting together a program MEANT to fail.

Romney and Jindal are both right. Romney is right about the problem and Jindal is right about the solution, namely that the GOP must frame its appeal to all Americans.

he exchanges will happen. It isn´t a matter of Jindel stopping them, its a matte of who runs them. So the fat, sick and lazy will be able to get free goobernment healthcare through a Federal exchange instead of a state exchange. Big deal!

Teachable moment here, Bobby. This is what you can expect from here on out. The craven fear of calling a parasite entitlement junkie a parasite entitlement junkie will not induce the parasite entitlement junkies to vote for you. You´ll get out-pandered by the Democrats every time. You and/or Rubio and/or Jeb Bush are going to find that out in 2016 when you get your butts handed to you again.

#6 and others speak for me. Let the feds run the exchange. Why have a different bureaucracy in each state.

The feds will just end up bullying the state exchange anyway. And Washington will change the regulations and details at any time for political reasons.

As I suggested elsewhere the feds should contract exchange operation to the post office. It needs more revenue and already has buildings and staff almost everywhere.

Postmaster Of Waco and Chairman Of The Death Panel seems like a nice title.

Bobby realizes that taxpayer have a finite amount of money but governments view their funds as unlimited. Two rules of governements in general: They always spend more than they take in and they never take in enough to satisify their wants.

Jindal is playing the games three moves deep.

There is no enumerated power for the feds to wade into individual States and meddle in health care. When they do, constitutional legal challenges will bog down ObamaNoCare for years.

Jindal is calling the federal bluff. The ball is in Hussein’s court. He punted the stand-off to February, but he’ll have to stand up at some point.

A truly emetic announcement from the grim but indispensable Swedish flatpack furniture emporium IKEA: they are considering changing the recipe of their most popular food line--meatballs--in order to help save the world from global warming. [Snip] IKEA--the place you go to, reluctantly, because the furniture is so cheap and practical, not because you want to save the planet for Mother Gaia--actually employs a "head of sustainability"? If that´s not a strong dump signal for the stock, I don´t know what is. What´s worse, though, is that IKEA actually admits to allowing the kind of food it serves in its restaurants

Choc horror: It might be Easter but the

The price of chocolate could soar over the next few years as surging demand puts further pressure on the global cocoa crisis--and experts predict the demand could become unsustainable by 2020. Experts are warning that a growing taste for chocolate in Asia--particularly in China--means cocoa farmers will need more help to provide a greater amount to export or manufacturers will be forced to use less cocoa in their products. It is predicted chocolate prices will soar to keep up with the rising demand--otherwise consumers will increasingly be offered products filled with substitutes, such as nuts and fruits, to ‘pack out’ chocolate bars.

An investigation into Birmingham schools at the centre of a plot to introduce hardline Islamist teaching has found pupils were illegally segregated and non-Muslim students were discriminated against. [Snip] Department for Education inspectors were ordered into Park View School and its sister schools, Golden Hillock and Nansen, after a letter dubbed ´Trojan Horse´ was uncovered apparently outlining a plot by Muslim hardliners to drive moderate headteachers out of schools. The unsigned and undated letter claimed that a small but radical group of Muslims was pursuing its own agenda in the classrooms, with uncooperative headteachers and governors forced out.

In 1925, Rudyard Kipling wrote an uncharacteristically restrained and sombre short story called The Gardener. It tells of a woman’s search for her illegitimate son, who goes missing in action on the Western Front. After the Armistice, she learns that he has been killed, and is buried in a military cemetery. Arriving there, she finds a man planting flowers in the earth and asks him where she might find her “nephew”. The man looks at her “with infinite compassion,” and tells her “Come with me, and I will show you where your son lies”. As she leaves the graveyard, she

Harry Reid calls dissident Nevada ranchers

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer.

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
