Seldom do I voice an opinion on matters of Louisiana politics or government, but alas, the constant turmoil has become too much to bare in silence.  It is as if prolonged cuts to higher education and 25% tax hikes were not enough, elected leaders in-charge of the Department of Revenue have affirmed the unorganized, mismanaged culture that permeates our “leadership”.  Given such an environment, it is no surprise (but nonetheless a crying shame) that their constituents end up holding the bag.  In this instance, the citizens originally harmed by severe storms and flooding will effectively receive a double-dose of bureaucratic bi-product, as they are now being denied a brief, but modest, financial reprieve.
