Dismantle Institutions That Serve Average Oklahomans

Today (Feb. 1, 2012) the Democratic caucus of the OK legislature issued a statement that included the following:

” … it is self-evident that part of the Republican agenda has been, and continues to be, an all-out attack to dismantle institutions that serve average Oklahomans. People afflicted with mental illness, the developmentally disabled, the sick, the injured, the unemployed, kids, students, the working poor, the struggling and shrinking middle class – they are all under attack. None of these people are better served by a Republican agenda that shields corporations and the wealthy at whatever cost to all others. Right now they are working every angle to reduce the top income tax bracket, despite study after study that shows the little benefit to most Oklahomans, and despite the consequences of these lost dollars to public services. We have to come together as one and show them that there are repercussions to GOP overreach.”
