FYYFF to the Louisiana legislature

So PBJ drops his poison pen and vetoed the ginormous lege payraise. And he pulls their money plug the day before the raise kicked in. Good for him, he gave us a glimpse of his cojones…

However this statement in the following text demands vehement protest…

‘I thank the people for their voice and their attention,’ Jindal said of the public outcry against the raise. ‘I am going to need your help to move this state forward. … The voters have demanded change. . . . I made a mistake by staying out if it’ originally.

Jindal said that legislators ‘are going to be angry I broke my word to them’ by promising to stay out of the pay raise issue. ‘Let them direct their anger to me and not the people of this state,’ Jindal said.

The governor said that although he originally promised to refrain from injecting himself in the issue because a veto may threaten his future legislative programs, he was wrong.

‘The bottom line is that allowing this excessive legislative pay raise to become law would so significantly undercut our reform agenda and so significantly diminish the people’s confidence in their own government that I cannot let it become law, so I have vetoed the bill.’

LET THEM DIRECT THEIR ANGER TO ME AND NOT THE PEOPLE OF THIS STATE???? What in the hell does THAT mean? Do the legislators believe they are so untouchable, that if their voting base pisses them off then they will retaliate against them??? Have those assholes in the Baton Rouge capitol forgotten that it is US the VOTERS that put them there, and we can just as easily yank them out of office??? According to this link, courtesy of Suspect Device, apparently the leges have forgotten who sent them to Baton Rouge…

I swear to gawd, every one of those leges should be tossed into the Mississippi River. FYYFF to every damn one of them…
