    Rather silly commentary there friend.
    About this though he is absolutely right. If it was for ideological reasons he wouldn't accept it at all.

    So is Clinton, but I still bash him. Why? Because we cannot forget what he did to degrade the Oval office. Same with Bush. He passed a stimulus plan too, one that I have an honest disagreement with. Same with Obama. He also pass a stimulus plan, one that I have an honest disagreement with. What is done by leaders, whether Democrat or Republican, present or past, should not be forgotten, lest those same mistakes are repeated.

    Now, do you have something to say that is on topic, or are you just going to continue calling people names?

    Considering the situation? Yes. Bobby Jindal is CLEARLY aiming for higher office. Screwing the people that can get him there? Not a smart idea. Specially on something as expandable as his political beliefs.

    Exactly who is he screwing and how?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    By not accepting federal money it can be perceived that he is screwing the unemployed.

    Not only that but the federal government increased unemployment benefits by $25 a week.

    Yes but what happens when that money runs out (and it will), how will the state pay to keep the program running?

    Raise taxes and/or beg for more federal dollars.

    Like in my state they are taking the feds money for medicaid and they are tagging people with health insurance with a 1.5% "fee" and raising the cigarette tax.

    It goes up but never comes back down.

    What I foresee happening is that money drying up and Washington saying "Sure, we'll give you more but you have to (insert policy change they want here) before we'll give it to you."

    And that, is the end game here IMHO. Once you're hooked, it's really hard to shake that lure out of your mouth.
