    You might want to rethink your premise.

    Jindal took office right after Katrina. Many of the Hospitals in New Orleans were not restarted.

    We spent $1.1 billion on the new University Medical Center which opened in August 2015

    There is a new Veterans hospital being built as a joint venture between the State and the Feds.

    And other Hospitals have been built or repaired.

    As for a Rainy Day fund – we had a lot of Rainy Days recently.

    The State – New Orleans and Lake Charles – was hit by Katrina and Rita in 2005.

    Baton Rouge was hit by Gustav in 2008.

    The Deep Water Horizons oil spill in 2010

    And in central Louisiaba by Hurricane Isaac in 2012

    And the oil price crash in 2015.

    So when would you suggest that the fund be restocked?
