Today’s “Meet The Press” had a very short segment that was more impactful than most would immediately imagine. Having David Gregory make factual assertions to both Gov. Bobby Jindal (R-LA) and Gov. Deval Patrick (D-MA) about GOP policies was all the more poignant, particularly given that, over the past several years, he has appeared to be either an apologist for GOP middle class destructive policies by giving them airtime and plausibility, or someone who continuously misrepresents the liberal side of the discussions by adopting Republican talking points.
Here are some statistics, state to state, Massachusetts to Louisiana, that reflect kinda more services, less taxes, and the different results. Put that up there. You have a bigger population in Massachusetts. You see that there. The high school graduation rate much higher in Massachusetts. The median income about 20,000 higher. The percentage of population without healthcare insurance much higher in Louisiana. The percentage of the population on food stamps much higher in Louisiana. So does this, do results break a little along some of the ideological and philosophical lines about taxes and the amount of government services? [Source: video below]
