It's an election year! As predicted by me, we will not get School Choice. I seriously doubt we will get a Heartbeat Bill to the Governor's desk and now we know we won't get permitless carry either.
Yesterday morning the school choice bill was pulled from the House Education Committee because it didn't have the votes. Remember, Republicans have majorities on ALL the committees because they control the House and the Senate.
By the afternoon, permitless carry had gone away and even though the Heartbeat Bill survived the funnel, I doubt it will end up on the Governor's desk.
Perhaps the bigger problem here is that GOP Leadership will NOT make their members take votes. You can privately inform the Speaker in the House and the Senate Majority Leader's office that you will vote NO and if enough GOP people do that, they won't take the vote.
Its a serious issue for you and me because these people could end up on our doorsteps this summer asking for our support and we won't know where they stand on these key issues.
So has the GOP lost it's spine?
