Reply to "State Senator Roger Bedford"

This is what Bedford told the Alabama Political Reporter in its entirety and I quote, “The ruling shows that once again the Republican Supermajority has wasted hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxpayers money. They have unnecessarily threatened and endangered Alabama’s economy and our image." He went on to say, “Real leadership would have waited a few months, seen what the U.S. Supreme Court said is constitutional and what’s not and then we could have come with a rational plan,” said Bedford. He believes that, “If the Governor and the Republican Supermajority would have done what the Democrats asked them to do which was wait and let the Supreme Court decide, we would have saved a lot of money and not wasted so much time chasing rabbits down rabbit holes.”

Bedford further stated, “The Republican Supermajority chose to play to the fears as well as the racism of a small section of Alabama voters which make up, sadly, a huge voting block of the Republican primary.” Bedford says that Democrats stand for “meaningful reform but it needs to start with the President and the Congress enacting a new national policy.”
