CT Reps Vote – May 22, 2006

A few days late, sorry about that. Here’s the latest from the CT reps… Dodd and Lieberman voted no “to declare English as the national language” but yes “to declare English is the common and unifying language”. Way to walk the fence boys. Take a stand, oh, looks like you did… And you were on the wrong side of what most people would say is the big one – declaring English as the national language.

Ms. DeLauro hasn’t had her chance to make her opinion known to the public. What’s it going to be Rosa? Are you playing with the boys in the sandbox or are you standing on your own two feet? This should have been decided voted on ages ago.
