Statement on House Democrats returning to the Statehouse
INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana Democratic Party Chair Dan Parker issued the following statement on House Democrats returning to the Statehouse today:
“The Republicans called us names, threatened us with fines and tested our resolve, but in the end, compromise and negotiation trumped their radical agenda. This timeout gave thousands of Hoosiers the chance to take part in the process and have their voices heard by Republicans.
“Is this the perfect solution? No. But it is a solution that protects Indiana’s middle class from the GOP plan to lower wages and eliminate worker rights.
“I can only hope that Republicans will conduct the rest of the session in a tempered, moderate fashion instead of trying to ram their agenda through.
“I want to personally thank House Democrats for standing up for Hoosiers and forcing the GOP to listen.”
