These 13 have never ever strayed far from any of jack’s preferred pieces of legislation…  His threat of veto was aimed at these 13 to hold firm, no matter what their constituents want or said.  These 13 are the governor’s pocket votes.  Life should be very interesting for them across the next four days.

Essentially these 13 are siding with the lobbyists and corporations against parents… They feel corporations know best.. whereas parents don’t know jack….
