Bobby Vetoes the Raise

Posted By on Mon, Jun 30, 2008 at 4:59 PM

Gov. Bobby Jindal has vetoed the legislative pay raise.  He did it this morning (Monday). Details have not yet been revealed, but what’s clear is that, in the minds of most voters, he did the right thing. Did he do it for the right reason? That is, was this truly a principled response to a legislative excess, or was it purely in response to political pressure? I vote for the latter. If he were acting out of principle, he would have acted a lot more forcefully — and a lot sooner. More later as additional information and analysis is available. At a minimum, he has taken this matter off the map for now, and taken lawmakers off the hook.
