    Good job Piyush! That's sure to advance the Republican Party of Louisiana! Way to stand on your principles! You're right, we can't afford healthcare for those people, but we can afford a multi-million dollar overhaul for the state's Capitol building!

    Upgrade the HEATING and air conditioning? sorry - but having HEAT in the Capitol of Louisiana is a higher priority than health insurance for over 10% of its residents?

    Likely not, he’ll be forced to capitulate. But for now it appeases the radical right.

    It also makes him look like a total douchebag.

    He'll look worse when Louisianians realize the governor can only "opt out" of the benefits the program offers.
    The liabilities the program incurs - the penalty tax for not having health care, or the increased Medicare tax on those making more than 200k/250k, etc. - are enforced via the IRS. And they have agents everywhere and the force of the federal government to enforce the tax code. He's trying to look like Huey Long defying the federal government and all but he's picking the wrong battle.

    Why is Jindal suddenly the target of every two bit left wing editorial posted by the left? There are dozens of other states that decided to reject provisions of the 3,000 monstrosity that few democrats even read before they used intimidation and bribes to get it passed. The democrat speaker of the house even looked Americans in the eye and said" you will know what's in it after it is passed".

    They will be if they get a big bundle from Obama for the speeding bullet train. Meanwhile, they just keep raising people's taxes.

    That's easy! Jindal has been named as a possible VP candidate. SOP for Democrats.

    Well yea. Republicans hate the middle class and the poor even more. Let them die. Funny, so many Republicans on Social Security, Medicare and disability. Rather odd that.
