Senate Republicans have picked up right where they left off in 2012. Last year they rammed through an ultra-conservative agenda that turned back the clock on women’s health, voting rights, and commonsense gun regulations.
This year they are at it again, only this time they are breaking the rules to do it. Senate Republicans are blatantly attempting to undermine the redistricting process by radically altering the current legislative districts. Earlier this week, while Americans were celebrating the life of Martin Luther King and President Obama’s inauguration, Senate Republicans decided to gerrymander the current senate district maps in order to dilute the impact of Democratic voters in future elections.
