State Repubicans and the Social Agenda
The new majority talks about that it is all about the budget and jobs but their supporters want them to address the social concerns. It is a quandary. Many of these supporters realize that at the national level where they had Congress, the President, and the Court they were let down so they want to make sure that the State moves on this agenda. That means no more morning after pill, no more guarantee that prescriptions get filled, more restrictions on abortion, and a repeal of the sex education law. This is just for starters. I agree that they should move on this agenda otherwise it looks a lot like they used these issues and their supporters to get elected.
