The House and Senate

I mentioned to a friend that I perceived the Georgia House acted more conservatively than the Senate this past session. He strongly disagreed and made a compelling case that the Senate was more conservative. He backed his argument up with the various pro-life pieces of legislation and tax reforms that left the Senate only to be blocked in the House.

So, what do you think?

    Well, that’s just great that the only true definition of a “conservative legislature” is one that mostly concerned with “pro-life” related legislation.

    Yes, just toss those Republican principles on the ash heap, shall we?

    The senate was wore conservative due to the fact that a majority but not all of the Republican House members are the governor’s little b*****s, they are naturally not as conservative as the senate because the governor isnt. They do what they are told. The senate is more conservative but not conservative enough, by far.

    I think it is going to take Democrat governor to bring out the true conservatism of those in the general assembly. That is what we need. Not a Democrt governor in a false veil of Conservatism as the one we have now.

    Neither one of them really did that much to advance the items they said they’d run on.

    But I’d give the advantage to the Senate, they did push items like a taxpayer’s divdidend, pro life legislation, and Cagle’s senior tax cut.

    That all died in the House. I think more due to incompetence and juvenile behavior by the leadership over there than any kind of secret liberalism. Glenn and Jerry and the gang need to grow up a little and learn a little bit about how to lead. Then maybe we’ll get something done.

    Well, the Senate did kill the stupid AGL pipeline giveaway by not letting it out of the Rules Committee. So, the edge goes to the Senate for stopping poor, downtrodden AGL in its tracks.

    Bill-

    I don’t think you should be giving kudos to the Senate for killing the AGL bill since it’s demise had nothing to do with actual policy. That bill was simply a casualty of the power struggle between the House and the Senate.

    The Senate also passed title pawn regulation legislation three times and no action by the House.
