[Louisiana governor Bobby] Jindal declared, “Absolutely, we’re not implementing the exchanges. We’re not implementing Obamacare” following the Supreme Court’s ruling that Obamacare is constitutional.
I think this is a great decision by Gov. Jindal. What with the proliferation of health problems in Louisiana—including our extraordinarily high instances of cancer—it only makes sense to block access to healthcare for those who either can’t afford it or have some kind of preexisting condition.
Taken together with today’s announcement that the state is cutting funding from libraries, the gutting of CODOFIL’s budget, and the education issue, as well as his recent unopposed reelection, it seems like we’re in for an uncomfortable time down here. And that’s not even taking the weather into consideration.
