Sanford Bishop is too out-of-touch to understand what this bill will do to the people he is supposed to represent. Most of us in Soutwest Georgia have been waiting for Bishop to wake up and do the right thing, but last night he showed us he doesn’t care what we think. I find it hard to believe he even knows what he voted for.
The bill is too expensive. It will raise taxes, kill jobs in Southwest Georgia, push our country further into debt, and force new government mandates on states and small businesses. At a time when we have record unemployment in Georgia this bill is wrong for Georgia and America. When the voters of Southwest Georgia send Sanford back home in November, I will vote to repeal this law.
