Jindal: GOP Has ‘Fallen Into A Trap Of Believing The World Revolves Around Washington’

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) told a group of Republicans in St. Louis on Saturday that the GOP has been spending too much time obsessing over government bookkeeping and not enough time emphasizing the party’s message of economic growth.

From the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:

“We must not become the party of austerity. We must become the party of (economic) growth,” Jindal said. “We have fallen into a trap of believing the world revolves around Washington.”

Jindal delivered a similar message at the Republican National Committee’s meeting in Charlotte, N.C. last month.
