Reed’s Plan

Ralph Reed has introduced “a comprehensive economic policy agenda to create jobs, attract business and grow Georgia’s economy.” You can read it here. The plan has a taxpayer dividend act, an income tax reform, a “Homeowner Protection Act,” and more.

This all raises for me the question of coordinated plans. If Ralph or Casey get elected, how much are they going to be pushing their own agenda and how much are they going to push the governor’s. Of course I’m on record as saying the Governor and Lt. Gov. should run as a ticket.

    I do not agree with them running as a ticket.

    I also do not agree with the Governor dictating what can and can’t be pushed in legislation i.e. removal of the school portion on property tax. I have it from a very high ranking Legislator that the Governor forced this issue and TABOR off the table.

    I hope who ever wins RR or CC, that they push a different agenda to add more ideas to table.

    I also hope and pray the Governor gets re-elected (no matter how unhappy I could get he is better than the big guy or Cathy Cox) but my gut says we may loose that one maybe the new year win bring a new attitude to me and the voters I speak with.

    Does our Governor have a plan? Last I read here he doesn’t want to rock the boat before election day. I hope Perdue’s election message is more than “vote for me or an evil democrat will live on West Paces Ferry”.

  3. Bull Moose says:

    Agree — Does the Governor have a plan?

    Healthcare better be at the top of someone’s agenda… AND NO — putting Peachcare as a managed care plan doesn’t count — that’s just shifting…

    See below from Bill Shipp’s Georgia. Leave it to Ralph to torpedo his own jobs press conference by declaring war on the Senate caucus …

    On regaining the lost powers of the lieutenant governor, now vested largely in Senate President Pro Tem Eric Johnson, R-Savannah, Reed said:

    “I think we have to keep in mind that the reason why the lieutenant governor’s office has been stripped of most of its historic role and influence and effectiveness is because of the current occupant. We have a current occupant (Democrat Mark Taylor, who is seeking his party’s nomination to challenge Gov. Sonny Perdue next year) who is at odds with the rest of state government. That will change upon the election of a Republican lieutenant governor.
