Bobby Jindal Talks Health Care, Times-Picayune Cuts & Mardi Gras on Meet the Press (VIDEO)
After storming out of the gates Thursday, our Veep-seeking gov, Bobby Jindal, continued his rapid-fire opposition to Obamacare on Sunday morning's edition of Meet the Press. Paired with former Democratic presidential candidate Howard Dean, Jindal rattled off his case against President Barack Obama's health care refrom, but host David Gregory still had a chance to press him about his declaration that he won't enact Obamacare in Louisiana. Jindal also chimed in with some Mardi Gras and TImes-Picayune talk.
Since the Supreme Court's decision upholding health care reform came down, Jindal has been saying he won't enact the reforms in Louisiana. He said he won't set up exchanges, or expand Medicaid in the Pelican State, and will instead work to get Mitt Romney elected in an effort to repeal the law.
"We're gonna have more people in the cart than pulling the cart," he said of adding a large, new federal program to the national budget. :We're going to go the way of Europe if we don't repeal this law."
Later, Gregory again pressed Jindal when he was making a point about leaving health care to the states.
"I come from one of the most culturally distinct states in the entire country. Mardi Gras is right for Louisiana It may not work as well in Vermont or other states. The reality is what works in Massachusetts may not be appropriate for another state," Jindal said, referring to the state where Republican nominee Mitt Romney enacted a health care program similar to Obamacare while governor.
"Wait, you're really comparing Mardi Gras to universal health insurance?" Gregory said.
"What I'm saying is every state is different," Jindal responded before going on to say the Supreme Court is eroding our freedoms.
At the end of the interview, Gregory took a moment to ask Jindal about the cuts at the Times-Picayune. He said he was "saddened" by the reduced print schedule, and said newspapers are necessary for holding government officials accountable.
"I have a lot of friends that work at the paper. I don't always agree with the paper, and I shouldn't always agree with the paper," Jindal said. "I think it's important for democracy that we've got robust news-gathering organizations."
