I first of all want to say that the Bobby Jindal administration needs a dose of social and econimic reality. I was all for Bobby Jindal until this point. I currently work in the medical transportation field for a prominent EMS agency in the state of Louisiana. I work close knit with NOAH and other medical and psychiatric facilities. The city of New Orleans, along with its surrounding parishes psychiatric facilities, beds, and staff are limited and saturated. My company makes a large amkount of money transporting psychiatric patients hundreds of miles out of new orleans area hospitals secondary to there not being enough psyche capabilities. Many of these patients have no medical insurance and the taxpayers are suffering the consequences as a result. Furthermore, what about the staff of NOAH? Unemployment is already a detriment in the nation and mainly southern Louisiana. Why add to the problem of unemoployment by cutting jobs at Noah? Isn't enough damage being done as a result of the freeze on Louisiana's health jobs? And what about the 300 other jobs our governer deems unnecessary when our hospitals are already understaffed? I think its pathetic our governer is making these decisions as a result of his own selfish political reasons. Unfortunately for Louisiana, Bobby Jindal is no different than the rest of the political crooks this state has encountered.
