Gov. Barbour first said he wasn’t going to take any stimulus money for education, because it was going to cause Mississippi to completely re-write its budget. … Then he asked someone about it. Turns out that’s not the case.
So now he says he will take the money — but “I would have voted against this legislation were I in Congress.”
He also made the point that the stimulus money is going to be really bad for Mississippi in the long run, saying, “FY 12 is poised to be the most difficult budgetary year our state has had in recent memory.”
You think he’s just saying that?
Maybe he will check into it, ask someone who really knows and change his mind later.
Barbour is really into changing his mind lately. Like with the BP oil spill.
First, it was “just a nuisance”, then it was a danger to the Coast we must attack. Most recently, though, the governor has come out on the side of the oil was never as bad as the media made it out to be.
Maybe, he should just ask Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal.
