How desperate are Republicans in the State Senate in Georgia? They’re bringing back affirmative action.
See, the Georgia Republicans in the State Senate need Democrat votes to pass their billion dollar transportation tax increase. But they need black Democrats to do it because there are enough Republicans not willing to go along for the ride. Consequently, the GOP will essentially bribe the Democrats.
They are going to ensure set asides for road projects. They will ensure a certain number of black owned businesses are able to make money off the tax payers. The chief complaint of Democrats has been that black owned construction companies are not getting their “fair share” of the projects.
The GOP will ensure that to get Democrat votes to make up for their lack of Republican votes.
They’ll then raise taxes on the public.
