Robert Burns outlines the second entry on JBEfraud.com: The
$615,000 impact on the state retirees' UAL resulting from the
appointment of Jay Dardenne as Commissioner of Administration
at a salary of $237,000/year. CLICK HERE for the detailed
computations of Dardenne's UAL impact. CLICK HERE to
obtain a first-hand demonstration of the damage of a Category 4
hurricane, which Burns has now assessed JBE's pending term in office
to be as a result of early signals of how JBE will govern (i.e. the
Edmonson re-appointment, the fiscal irresponsibility of
the Dardenne appointment, the removing of the requirement
that able-bodied 18-49 year olds with NO DEPENDENTS be
required to either work or enroll in job training to continue
receiving food stamp benefits, etc.) Finally, Burns issues challenge
to the tag-team of JBE / Dardenne by proposing a mechanism
to rein in these exorbitant golden parachutes for fat cats like
Dardenne since both Dardenne and Edwards SAY that, for
the upcoming special session "all options are on the table."
Louisiana Treasurer John Kennedy stresses his strong belief that
Louisiana "does not have a revenue problem but instead has a spending
problem." He also emphasizes that "no matter how high we raise taxes, we'll
never solve our budget problems until we change our spending practices but will instead
go from one budget crisis to another." Kennedy SPECIFICALLY addresses
items such as the Dardenne appointment from the 4:55 - 5:20 mark of the above video!
