State of our great State, its present discourteous political discourse and this precedent set by the Democrats in 2017s legislative session, it would be only fair and appropriate that their cries of anguish about bias and fairness go unanswered
Elected Republicans represent nearly a third of Californias legislators, but are only getting 18 percent of their bills passed, for eventual consideration by Gov. Jerry Brown. This is despite the fact that they represent nearly 40 percent of the voters who cast ballots in the last election. And even worse, Brown so far has only approved about 16.5 percent of Republican bills, while Democrats saw 83.4 percent of their bills signed into law.
A few revealing statistics surrounding the outcomes for 2,550 new bills introduced during the recent 2017 session in the California Legislature point out which party gets to feast, and which can expect leftover crumbs.
The numbers tell the story. The Republicans are so outnumbered in the legislature, and have a Democrat governor. Based on that the GOP can’t accomplish anything without a great deal of compromise and working with Democrats.
Democrats, on the other hand, are so dominant that they can ram things through, with no consideration of Republicans.
Misleading title, as it should say: Numbers Show The Deck is Stacked against Republicans in Californias Legislature
And their point is ?!?
We live under a dictatorship in California.
I don’t see this changing. I think we are past the point of no return. I also don’t see CA as collapsing, but just devolving into 3rd world status.
A three million + vote differential between Hillary and Trump in CA should be a major flag regarding voter fraud..........And yet the libtards I have to deal with say Hillary won the popular vote...........I’m coming close to punching them out.
How do they get any bill passed? Oh. i know. By making bills the democrats agree with. This is democrats idea of both parties working together.
Which both Sessions and Kobach should be investigating vigorously.
But only Kobach is, and he gets far too much pushback from the Mexican Attorney General of California and the Mexican Secretary of State of California because those are their voters: the illegals.
THAT is where the political power in California has been stolen, and it's NOT a little thing.
We should be so lucky in the US Congress as to have that much leverage....
Stupid head line...should be “stacked against”
