Critics counter Gov. Edwards claims of economic progress

OCTOBER 16, 2018 | by Bethany Blankley | LOUISIANA WATCHDOG

“… Bill Bergman, Truth in Accounting’s (TIA) director of Research, told Watchdog.org, “Looking across the 50 states, we see a tendency for states with higher shares of Medicaid enrollment in total population to have higher taxpayer burdens, and slower economic growth. Coincidentally, or not, Louisiana ranks near the bottom third of states on TIA’s Taxpayer Burden measure, and has had sub-par performance in GDP per capita in recent years.” (Note: See this chart, created in seconds from our State Data Lab website)
