Hoping to impose even more tax hikes on the people of Louisiana, Democrat Governor John Bel Edwards is trying to change the rules to suit his liberal political agenda.
In a new column for The Advocate, Jeff Sadow accuses Edwards of pursuing a “create-a-crisis strategy” in order “to bring higher taxes on Louisianans” by disregarding state laws and flouting key statutes. Sadow contends that Edwards is manipulating the state’s budget process to pave the way for tax increases, writing “when the rules facilitated Edwards’ agenda, he followed them; when they didn’t, he didn’t.”
Already having broken his pledge to not raise taxes on the people of Louisiana, Edwards now appears to be ignoring state laws so that he can keep forcing working families to foot the bill for his big government agenda. Louisianans can’t afford a second term for John Bel Edwards.
