Jenny AU-92 0 Posted August 16, 2006 Share Posted August 16, 2006 I read this on "A Bama Blog" today. This is unbelievable!! If the Dems really believe these things, why not just become a Republican! Link to Article Alabama Democrats unveil "Covenant for the Future" MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) Ã¢â‚¬â€ Democratic leaders revealed a 'Covenant for the Future' Tuesday with issues they plan to introduce during the 2007 legislative session, but critics say many of the proposals, such as banning PAC to PAC transfers, have been killed by Democrats in past sessions. ... In addition to banning transfers between political action committees, the covenant also includes calls for eliminating sales tax on groceries, passing an amendment saying life begins at conception, requiring public schools to offer Bible literacy curriculum, passage of the Alabama Border Protection Act and creation of a scholarship program for medical students. House Minority leader Rep. Mike Hubbard, R-Auburn, issued a scathing response to the Democratic initiative Tuesday, calling it the "worst case of political plagiarism in Alabama history." "In session after session, Republicans introduced most of the bills the Democrats now claim to support in areas like illegal immigration, property tax reappraisals and tax cuts," Hubbard said in the statement. "And in session after session the Democrats killed them all. The inaction of the Democrat leadership on these issues speaks much louder than their cheap words." Wonder how much THIS had anything to do with it... methinks they doth protest too much... guess they really believe the bama voters are THAT stupid... Both Hammett and Little face opposition in the Nov. 7 general election to retain their seats, but said Tuesday's tour, which offered few specifics, was not a ploy to get them re-elected or to retain the Democratic majority in the House and the Senate. Democrats have a 62-43 majority in the House and 25-10 in the Senate. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
