Jindal’s Baton Rouge, DC

CB Forgotston is a Republican. A conservative Republican. But that hasn’t stopped his open war against the Jindalistas. He’s assailed Bobby on a number of fronts, probably most recently on his ill-fated tax reform idea. 

In his latest angle, Forgotston focuses on the transformation of the Capitol, into a with-us or against-us partisanship that comes straight from Washington, DC. And CB says it was imported by former Congressman Bobby Jindal:

The more I watch the goings on at the State Capitol in Baton Rouge, the more it looks like the U.S. Capitol in D.C.

It is preview of what a Bobby Jindal Presidency would look like. Despite what Jindal thinks and a few pundits say, thankfully, there will never be a Jindal Presidency.

Enter Jindal

Pre-Jindal, there was very little evidence of partisanship in the lege body. There were philosophical divides on issues rather than DC-style partisanship.

Jindal has moved the lege process from a discussion of issues to whether one is for or against Bobby.

Inconsistent philosophy

Because of Jindal’s consistent inconsistency it is impossible for lege to deal with him based on issues.

This session Jindal supported a billion dollar tax on businesses, but opposed a two cent tax on cell phones.

Jindal supported a $1.05 tax increase on cigarettes, but opposed much smaller ones.

Jindal has opposed the use of one-time money to fund recurring expenditures and now he supports the same.

I could go on, but it suffices to say that when it comes to fiscal issues Jindal has been solidly on both sides of every one.

There’s more where that came from.
