Prime time is intrigue, action, drama and thought provoking. It captivates the audience, keeps them involved and leave the viewer on edge, waiting on the next episode. Although the campaign is just underway, State Senator Wendy Davis has yet to prove, she’s ready for prime time, or governor for that matter.
‘People don’t want to see us getting into those kinds of squabbles, Davis said when asked who should be blamed for the shutdown. ‘They want to see us doing the work that we’ve been elected to do. And Texas, I think, has done a better job of that. I know people don’t want to see us be Washington, D.C.’
As long as Texas is Republican controlled, in both houses, it will never be like Washington. When we look to the nation’s capitol, who’s doing the squabbling? Democrats want a crippling health care legislation that’s more of a gangland style shakedown, and Republicans, for once, is trying to actually represent the voters.
‘I’m in the camp that people should come together and find bipartisan solutions. That’s been my track record in the Texas Senate, Davis said. ‘I hope that our leaders in Washington on both sides of the aisle will come to the table and find a way to do the important work they’ve been elected to do.’
Bipartisan solutions? Where have we heard that before? Oh yeah, the president ran on that one, and since taking office, it’s been, no ‘negotiations.’ As for Davis, bipartisanship for her is also, no ‘negotiations.’ The bill she filibustered was SB 5, which was measures that placed bans on abortion after 20 weeks, mandated doctors who perform abortions have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital, and require clinics to meet the same standards as other surgical health-care facilities in the state. What was important was the safety of both, the fetus, as well as the woman’s safety. It was partisanship over safety for Davis.
‘We want to hear from voices all over the state of Texas, and this campaign is about including all those voices,’ she added. ‘That means going everywhere, having conversations with folks, not writing anyone off because of their partisanship.’
Where do you go to hear from the aborted babies?
