Maybe Democrats are intimidated
You stated in your March 27 editorial that Republican legislators feel unfairly intimidated if they vote against the desires of the party leadership. Is that really a Republican-only characteristic? If so, why did all 85 Democratic legislators vote for the tax?
A large segment of all voters are against the tax; how can it be so perfect that no Democrats voted against it?
Perhaps the Democratic legislators are more effectively intimidated by the Democratic party leadership than their Republican brethren.
