CHEYENNE, Wyo. — During a campaign stop in Cheyenne, Republican presidential hopeful Bobby Jindal says government leaders have a moral obligation to cut spending.

The Louisiana governor spoke for about an hour and half at an event hosted by the Wyoming Liberty Group on Monday night.

Jindal said ignoring spending problems on both the federal and state side is essentially stealing from the next generation of Americans.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/1OPjGSN ) that he also urged states to reject the optional Medicaid expansion. Wyoming is among the states that have not expanded the program.

Jindal said states can’t afford to extend their state spending and the federal government can’t be trusted to fulfill its funding obligation.

Jindal also talked about education, national security and his campaign.
