House Dems: ‘A Legislature run amok’

House Democrats called a press conference today to share their views of this year's legislative session, and Minority Leader John Rusche, D-Lewiston, said,  “In the exercise of absolute power the Republicans bullied, blustered and bungled their way through an extremist agenda that suggests to us that they are out of touch with average Idahoans.” He said, “For the last three months, reasonable discourse was discouraged, independent thinking was punished. Extremism was rewarded. … And Republican leadership didn't listen. They didn't listen to us, they didn't listen to dissenting voices in their own party, and they certainly didn't listen to the people of Idaho. This is a Legislature that has run amok, with no accountability to the people.” You can read the Dems' full statement here.
