Louisiana has proven to be far more conservative than many national Democrats believed, while also being far more liberal than many Louisiana Tea Party Republicans wish. The balance is that many programs in the legislature are shoved down the throats of the Leges, or they dig in their heels in an unusual display of unity and “Just Say NO!” A classic case of the need to say no now is in response to the proposed Tax Swap. And now the Times Picayune has come out formally to oppose the Voodoo Plan. It’s really not that difficult to say no, when so much is at risk. And now the unknowns far outweigh the knows in the Jindal Administration future. The scales have moved in light of the recent subpoenas issues by the grand jury, and the protected or sacred cows may be in danger.
