The @WAHouseDems have already refused to hear a bill banning weapons of mass murder, now leadership (Ed. Chair Santos and Speaker Chopp) are blocking the House from passing a comprehensive sex ed bill that has already passed the Senate. #waleg #waelex bit.ly/2JZHsQz
And yet again the reasons we are being given (as with the lack of action on a bill to ban weapons of mass murder) are totally specious. I guess all that volunteering and doorbelling is really paying off. 🙄
I know, I know... they’re better than the @WaHouseGOP alternative. Well duh! But that doesn’t mean there aren’t better options for leading the @WAHouseDems caucus then the ones that currently exist. While Chopp is surrendering the speakership at the end of this session...
It will remain paramount for the House Dems to think carefully about who they choose to lead the caucus and the individual committees moving forward. These are critical positions that carry immense power over what gets heard/passed and what doesn’t.
Dems should choose leadership that prioritizes passing policy that makes positive impact on people’s lives, over worrying about whether or not each bill is going to help elect/re-elect more @washdems This political calculating is insulting, harmful, and shameful. #leadership
Comprehensive sex education saves lives. Banning weapons of mass murder will save lives. These are issues of public health and safety. Dems are letting the people they represent down with this crap. Lead! Be bold! Reject the political fear and the people will reward you for it.
