Wallace Caves on unfair PUD Appliance Service Bill

Showing the guts and character that many democrats are known for, neo-comm state Rep. Deb Wallace (D-17) caved to leftist interests and changed her position on the bill put forward by her fellow neo-comms, Sen. Craig Pridemore (D-49) and Rep. Bill Fromhold (D-49).

Somehow, Wallace managed an abrupt about face when she switched from the common-sense, business-friendly position of stating she couldn't support sanctioning a public entity competing with private enterprise, to one of not giving a damn about that same "private enterprise."

Suddenly, the concept of public agencies competing with private business has no meaning for her.

This writer praised her courageous stance in opposing what best could be called an onerous, special-interest bill. Her lack of integrity in caving so fast to the incessant whining of her fellow democrat socialists shows how wrong I was.

And for that, I apologize.

OLYMPIA After being deluged by nearly 200 phone calls and e-mails, Vancouver Rep. Deb Wallace said Thursday she will support legislation authorizing Clark Public Utilities' repair service, reversing a stand she took last week.

"The difference the public input has made is that this bill is one I have to actively work because this is one my constituents are interested in," said Wallace, a Democrat.

I don't think Wallace is a communist. She just doesn't have a solid core conviction so she is easily swayed.
