It’s a long time until November, but we CAN elect a new slate of senators and representatives who have the good sense to see where this “slippery slope” is leading and the gumption to stand up for what is right and moral, and treat our military personnel with more respect.
‘We can do better than this in Indiana’
While I am glad to see our state’s unemployment rate dip, it is still above the national average, and our state’s average household income is stubbornly lower than it was 10 years ago.
Instead of focusing on ways to solve these challenges, Gov. Pence is squandering this legislative session away by allowing his party to focus on divisive social issues, rather than by working with Democrats to find ways to create jobs that don’t punish communities across Indiana.
Indiana should be in the news for our efforts to grow the state economy, but all anyone is talking about is efforts by Republican leadership at the Statehouse to divide Hoosiers and drive away the ability for employers to recruit and retain top talent.
The governor has made it clear he doesn’t want HJR-3 on the ballot in 2016 when he’s up for re-election, but he’s willing to let Hoosiers go without health care, income stability and good jobs that could reverse these trends. We can do better than this in Indiana.
