Thanks to Mark Binker over at Capitol Beat we get to see what some legislators really think when they propose legislation. Rep. Susan Fisher (D – Buncombe) let slip the following, “It will allow schools to teach what I think needs to be taught”(emphasis added). You can listen to part of her interview here. She also is happy that the requirement for a public hearing has been dropped. It is much cleaner when you can keep citizens out of the process and leave everything to people who know better.
By pulling the curtain back a little we see that some legislators legislate based on what "they think" is best for people and their families. This kind of thinking does not allow for individuals to decide what "they think" is best for them and their families.
