Governor Jindal Turns Down Stimulus Money For Unemployment Insurance

He fears that the money will run out in three years.

"We must be careful and thoughtful as we examine all the strings attached to the funding in this package. We cannot grow government in an unsustainable way."

Prudence -fair enough; but dear prudence, won't you open up your eyes?.  If you were going to be careful and thoughtful wouldn't you a) not decide to be the first of 50 people to turn something down b) not provide a transparent ideological response to it that makes very little sense?  Or to put it more succinctly: @#$@#%#@%@$#%. 

Curious whether you think we have some kind of responsibility to turn this mofo out because of identity.  Anyway, stay tuned for Jindal's response to Obama's address on Tuesday.
