In response to the Aug. 23 letter “Democratic doing”: I totally agree with the writer. I also think it is ridiculous that nobody seemed to be outraged by the lack of compensation for teachers in the state budget until there were a Republican governor and Republican majority in the state legislature.
Under the tenure of our last governor, teachers didn’t enjoy any raises, if I remember correctly. All of this recent outrage seems to have nothing to do with reason and everything to do with the Republican majority. Such hypocrisy.
