Again I write about how amazing it is that Gov. Bobby Jindal does not listen to his constituents, the people of Louisiana, by continuing to propose a sales tax increase. It is astounding how many unrelated factions have spoken out against his proposal, and the only people who seem to defend it are his staff members.

I urge opponents who wish to defeat this tax increase proposal to inform their legislative representatives their constituents oppose the tax and ask them to defeat it when it comes up for a vote. I, for one, will remember how my representatives voted and make their vote a basis of my vote when re-election time comes up again.
