More willful obstructionists surface

On June 15, the Associated Press covered Governor Blanco’s press conference announcing the administration’s abandonment of the cigarette tax. According to that report, the governor said, "I know that thousands of educators and parents across our state are bitterly disappointed that a willful, obstructionist group sided with cigarette vendors and against our teachers and against our children.” Today the administration can add the Times Picayune to the group of “willful obstructionists” siding against the state’s children.
