> A majority of Americans support a path to citizenship (h/t DailyKos). The WashingtonPost has poll results:
Nearly six in 10 Americans support a path to citizenship for undocumented workers in a new Washington Post-ABC News poll, but that number is drastically lower among self-identified Republicans – evidence of the political peril for Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and other GOP politicians involved in the negotiations on a compromise immigration bill.
Just 35 percent of Republicans support the idea of a path to citizenship while 60 percent oppose it in the Post-ABC poll, which was produced by Capital Insight. Among self-described “conservative Republicans,” the numbers are even more negative toward a path, with just 30 percent supporting the idea. And, Republican support is waning — ticking down seven points since a Post-ABC survey in February.
At the same time, Democratic support is reaching new highs — moving up to 73 percent from 68 percent in February — and more than eight in ten (84 percent) self-identified liberal Democrats...
Once again Republicans demonstrate their inability to be open, inclusive, forward-thinking, decent human beings..
If you need another example of a backward-thinking Republican, I present Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine. When he was a member of the U. S Senate, Mike DeWine was a right wing, faithful, obedient follower of President George W. Bush. Now Mike DeWine continues his right wing campaign as he tries to eliminate women's health decisions. Plunderbund has the ugly details.
Mike DeWine and the Republicans are always talking about freedom. However, if you are a woman, or gay, new to this country, poor, old, young, or not one of the Republican supporters, they want to limit your freedom to decide, to vote, be employed, be educated, etc. I just wish Mike DeWine, Kasich, and the rest of the GOP would stop worrying about people's reproductive parts because it is just plain weird.
>>> Gov. John Kasich is squarely to blame for the layoffs, cuts to services/schools, and confusion in communities across Ohio. Kasich's budget has cut even more money from cities/counties in Ohio than in previous budgets. Citybeat has the sad results of Kasich's cuts.
