Reuters can’t be happy with this.
Jindal must be denounced as something. Racist. Gun lover. Christian. Quickly, Reuters! Quickly!!
How many percent is Louisiana’s income tax anyway?
sales taxes instead of income taxes GOOD.
Looks like somebody is running for president.
Sure hope so.
I have a different first choice now, but sure wouldn’t mind seeing Jindal in the mix as well.
The complete opposite of California.
Reminds of George Costanza of Seinfeld’s amazing success formula
Works for me. :)
Will attract the attention of businesses in other states looking for a new home for sure.
My first thought exactly.
Now, I wonder how New Jersey Governor Pork Porkie will respond?
Sales tax can be as high as 9% in some parishes. Different rates for food and other items.
Jindal talks like a real Republican.
He’s got some great ideas, and he gave ‘Meh. Romney.’s campaign a kick in the @ss. :)
Besides, American cannot have Governor Scott Walker, yet. Let him whip us into shape, and THEN we’ll unleash him to save the rest of our nation. :)
When Texas has their no sales tax weekend for certain items, generally the week before school starts, there is a huge stream of traffic from Louisiana to Texas. If they drop state income taxes, wouldn’t be surprised to see them do a tax free weekend also. Also wonder if they pass this if ‘Bama and Mississippi will do the same thing. Then none of the states on the Gulf would have state income tax.
Sorry D in W. Ryan was a deer in headlights during the Debates. All he did was parrot what was told to him with no real depth. Anyway he voted with Obama on the recent tax increase.
Louisiana also has a charity hospital program for the poor.
Jindal ran it for awhile before becoming Governor.
We've had the same here for at least the last two years.
