Jindal in a box on the Stimulus Package?

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is walking a tight rope when it comes to balancing his conservative views towards government spending and the practicality of filling a budget deficit of some $2 billion. He gives the Republican response to the President’s State of the Union message this next Tuesday night, and will have to deal with the issue of whether to accept federal stimulus funds head-on. Jindal says he would have voted against the stimulus package in Washington, and is not sure how much of the federal money he will accept.

 But he doesn’t call the shots here. Under federal law, Louisiana Legislators have the right to accept the money even if Jindal does not. So has he placed himself in a box? Jim raises this question in his new column now posted. You can read it now by Clicking here. And you can also see Jindal’s comments when he was interviewed on a local TV station by Clicking Here.  And here’s what CBS news has to say about Jindal’s reluctance to take federal funds.  Click Here
