We go back to the doldrums of educational funding in this state in comparison to our national brethren... Democrats take the highest office in the state, and after 8 years of either protection from cuts in higher education and/or actual increases in higher educational spending, we see that the state's budget looks to cut over TWENTY MILLION DOLLARS IN FUNDING TO LSU... Let me say this again...TWENTY MILLION DOLLARS IN FUNDING FROM THE STATE'S FLAGSHIP SCHOOL! On top of this, there's a 8 million dollar cut on top of that in the general fund coming as well... This means that we've had a new governor for about a month, and it's cost LSU-THE FLAGSHIP STATE UNIVERSITY-THIRTY MILLION FRICKING DOLLARS... These cuts include the Law School, the Ag Center (Which just had a huge biotech breakthrough that will change the way medicines are synthesized and cheapen pharmaceutical costs PERMANENTLY-Great thinking, Kathy), the college at large, and even the LSU Health Center! Where is the outrage? Where is the vitriol? Most importantly...Where is the money going? Why, where else but to prop up and "fix" the antiquated pofolks charity hospital system the state has going...Which Mrs. Blanco will have a "summit" on using retiring Senators in around 90 days... One who the governor-as a candidate-once said that she wanted to gut and do away with... I wonder...How much UL-Lafayette will lose come funding time? Where is the outrage, people?
