OUR TURN: 'It's about time'

OUR TURN: It's about time

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - There are a number of sayings that come to mind to describe the recent legislative attempts to fix Louisiana's money problems.

"If first, you don't succeed, try try again."

"Never give up."

We prefer: "It's about time."

Plain and simple. Why did it have to come to the scare tactics, the antics, the posturing, and all the back and forth?

We know the answer to that question: politics.

We think many of our state's legislators simply put politics before the needs of our people - trying to save their own hide come election time.

But don't worry, the people know who you are and they don't forget. As for the ones who stood up and agreed to disagree but still found enough ground to work on, thank you.

Our state's most precious people have been protected, for now.
