Baton Rouge Traffic Will Just Have To Take A Back Seat With Graves' Budget Vote

The GOP Budget Garret Graves voted for is a gift to donors, lobbyists and the 1% while making life harder for the Working Class.  Instead of a Budget that puts millions to work fixing and upgrading our crumbling transportation infrastructure you'll just have to sit in traffic.
