Once again the Democrats have failed to control the debate on almost everything in Madison. One of the issues is the concealed carry bill, the most heinous and notorious being something touted as “Constitutional Carry”.
Well instead of decrying and complaining about the Voter ID bill which they labelled the Voter Suppression Act (nice try but no cigar…) they need to start getting out in front of the curve…Like promoting CONSTITUTIONAL VOTING!
And to paraphrase Sen. Holperin’s (D – WTF?) quote from this morning’s Milwaukee Journal Sentinel in FAVOR (?) of concealed carry in favor of my CONSTITUTIONAL VOTING bill: “I’ve always believed that responsible and qualified citizens deserve the right to vote and use voting as guaranteed by both our state and federal constitutions with the fewest possible restrictions”.
Admittedly the Republican majority is exerting near complete control over the environment inside of the Capitol…but it’s time the Democrats switched from being against everything and start PROPOSING alternatives and MESSAGING them clearly and cleanly to the public whether the majority lets them bring the ideas to to floor or no (thank you Paulette Garin).
