When I read about the failure of the House to overturn the veto by Gov. Bobby Jindal of the cigarette tax renewal, the word wimps jumped into my head.

This was obviously a poor decision. Anyone who has witnessed a loved one suffer and die with a lung disease knows the veto should have been overturned.

One House member said he did not want to embarrass Jindal … give me a break. How can he look in the mirror and shave in the morning!
