Hocus Pocus

In their big scheme to rule the world the republicans have hired on with Grover Norquist's Americans for Tax Reform. Grover sent me a letter this week "hoping that you would call on those who haven't signed the Pledge yet to make this important commitment." (You gotta be kidding!@#$%^%$#)

The pledge is more hocus pocus and that's putting it nicely. This group "sounds" good, it uses the buzzwords but in reality is dedicated to reducing the size of government which means it wants to reduce or eliminate services to seniors, services to children and essentially destroy our form of government.

Democrats stand for effective government that meets the promises of our Constitution and the needs of our people. I am proud to say that ONLY ONE DEMOCRAT has signed "the pledge" and he is term-limited this year. I am sad to say that 30 Republicans have signed it; four of whom are running for Congress, two for Lt. Gov. and one for Governor. Something is wrong here. They want to govern but they hate government. That's hocus pocus.
