What Louisiana Is Saying About Republicans’ Failure to Lead

BATON ROUGE – Voters throughout the state are making their voices heard, refusing to let Louisiana Republicans off the hook for the $1.6 billion budget disaster they aided and abetted in creating.

Collectively, the people who are paying attention are painting a grim picture of the GOP’s failure. “This legislature has created this crisis. In each of the three years they have passed budgets, crippling mid-year budget cuts have been made because their budget didn’t balance.  Now they are talking about just giving up?” said Stephen Handwerk, executive director of the Louisiana Democratic Party. “Voters are paying attention, and they will hold the GOP accountable for their failure this fall.”
