Gov. Bobby Jindal
continues to lie to the people of Louisiana (and America) when he claims the recent legislative session did not raise taxes. Nobody believes him, because the SAVE Act has been exposed for the sham that it is. Even conservative Republicans who voted for the act admit it's a gimmick that was conjured by Jindal to give him the patina of tax purity, with the blessing of Grover Norquist, who likewise is losing credibility on the "no taxes" issue because of Jindal's Orwellian claim of "no tax increases."
