For some time now myself and others have been railing on the idea that the GOP has been simply fighting against the President?s plan for moving the country forward and fixing our economy without providing some sort of alternative to the President?s budget.
Today the GOP put out a Budget Alternative, or at least a blue-print for one. Maybe it?s a rough draft?
Earlier Today I mentioned that the state Republicans are quickly trying to put pressure on state Senate Democrats in order to get them to cave in and allow people to actually vote on whether or not gays and lesbians will be allowed to get married and live happy lives just like everyone else and unfortunately it looks like its starting to work.
Democratic Senate President Jack Kibbie has stated that he would like to Iowans the opportunity to vote on stripping away marriage rights from gays and lesbians.
An amendment writing this sort of discrimination into our state constitution certain proves that Republicans are not telling the truth when they tell voters that they are in favor of limited government.
