Meet the Press Takes Bobby Jindal to Task Over Failed Republican Policies
On yesterday’s Meet the Press, David Gregory spoke with Gov. Bobby Jindal (R-LA) and Gov. Deval Patrick (D-MA) in comparing the policies they employed in their respective states and how the ideologies behind those policies either helped or hindered them. In a stunning rebuke of Republican ideals, the statistics didn’t lie. Deval’s blue state policies beat out Jindal’s conservative ideologies in every category from number of people on Food Stamps to high school graduation rate.
Here are some statistics, state to state, Massachusetts to Louisiana, that reflect kinda more services, less taxes, and the different results. Put that up there. You have a bigger population in Massachusetts. You see that there. The high school graduation rate much higher in Massachusetts. The median income about 20,000 higher. The percentage of population without healthcare insurance much higher in Louisiana. The percentage of the population on food stamps much higher in Louisiana. So does this, do results break a little along some of the ideological and philosophical lines about taxes and the amount of government services?
