Jindal supports Edmonson Amendment Wednesday, Aug 20 2014
Taxpayers being thrown to sharks.
The Associated Press is reporting that Bobby Jindal will not support litigating the Edmonson Amendment. Of course, he won’t; he is a key party to the taxpayer rip-off.
Jindal says to wait until the 2015 Regular Session to deal with it, legislatively. That is simply part of Dork Dynasty’s strategy to prevent litigation. It give the leges time to pass another special retirement bill for Edmonson.
The lege “solution” by Senator J.P. Morrell and Rep. Walt Leger (two of the six lege co-conspirators) is a crap shoot, at best.
Jindal knew the change helped Edmonson, he didn’t realize the legislation only affected two people when he signed it into law. Associated Press, August 19, 2014
Of course Jindal knew about it. He even authorized a transfer of $300,000 to the LSPRS to pay for the initial cost of the Edmonson rip-off. Additionally, Jindal’s executive counsel reviewed the bill before Jindal signed it. If Jindal wanted to know what the bill did all he had to do was ask.
Fool me once….
The La. State Police sneak through two significant unconstitutional pieces of legislation during the waning hours of the 2014 Session. They used the exact same trickery (Conference Committee Reports) to deceive the public. The Edmonson Amendment was one. The other was an $83 Million tax. Details here.
Do you trust the same people who pulled off two taxpayer robberies in one day to suddenly stop robbing us?
Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.
If your leges tells you the Edmonson Amendment can be fixed legislatively, tell them you aren’t as stupid as they think.
