Forrester: 'Enough Already'

Posted By on Fri, Jan 13, 2012 at 8:32 AM

Democratic Party chairman Chip Forrester, in a fund-raising pitch that just landed in our inbox, makes the early election-year case against the state's Republican majority:

A year ago, Gov. Bill Haslam and Republicans took over our state pushing a national, partisan agenda.

They refused to pass a single jobs initiative. They stripped common sense rights away from our public schoolteachers. And they put big money special interests over the interests of Tennesseans.

One year later and just a few days into 2012's legislative session, they haven't changed a bit.

This time around Haslam and the Republican legislature are pushing for new laws that will cram more kids into each classroom, give deeper tax breaks to their wealthy donors, and still fail to seriously address the jobs crisis.

It's only the beginning of 2012, and I've already had enough.
