Governor Bobby Jindal has voiced his opinion on the federal government's issues and the standoff over raising the debt limit.

He said President Obama needs to show more leadership, and the only way the current problems can be fixed is through structural change.

"They need the pressure of deadlines, and they really need structural reforms. Make them have a balanced budget amendment in the constitution, require a supermajority to raise taxes, require a supermajority before they can grow the government faster than the economy, put term limits, and make them a part-time Congress,” stated Jindal. “All those we have in the constitution of Louisiana. I think they'd work in D.C."

The government is expected to reach its debt limit on October 17, which could affect everyone in the country.

So everything is working well in Louisiana! LOL !!! The Governor needs to learn what leadership is first and actually show some to the people in the State of Louisiana. Leadership that does not include running off raising money all around the counrty for your Presidential bid, while the state is struggleing to get by. The Governor is a Rhodes Scholar, leadership could start with allowing our kids to have the same opportunity at becoming Rhodes Scholars. Show a little some leadership Governor!
