Disappointment in Levesque Voters
Even with the article’s lack of specificity about Levesque’s meaning, this is a bit hard to take:
“In a way, I’m disappointed in everybody,” Sen. Charles J. Levesque, D-Portsmouth, said to Kai-Yan Lee, of the Federal Reserve Bank in Boston, who presented a series of graphs on foreclosures, but “quite frankly no real suggestion of where we go from here.”
Perusing the legislation that Levesque introduced or cosponsored in the last legislative session, it is clear that he’s comfortable with the urges to micromanage and restrict economic relationships, to dilute the job market with illegal immigrants, to grow state government, and to increase the barbs with which parasites may latch on to Rhode Island’s economy (as with binding arbitration).
Among the Rhode Islanders in whom Levesque should be most disappointed are the person he sees when he looks in the mirror and the voters who keep sending the likes of him to the State House.
