How did we get here?

Bobby gave all the money away to his friends and now there isn't any money
For 30 years, Louisiana had enough money in its various accounts to shift around dollars temporarily and cover the bills without resorting to a short-term loan. But the money available to do that was spent when Gov. Bobby Jindal was in office, as he and lawmakers tried to avoid new taxes and spending cuts.
Doesn't look like anyone has a plan to find any more money any time soon. Certainly the Republicans in the House are happy to sit back and force the Governor to keep cutting stuff every year until that inevitably causes him to lose the next election.
