This explains a lot...

This meeting has turned into a Republican dogma indoctrination session, with Pearce leading the way, ably supported by his ideological saddle partners Gould, Harper, Sylvia Allen and Melvin.

The most illuminating quote, from discussion of one of the many Democratic amendments to support the children, the poor, and the disabled members of our community, Pearce said in support of his opposition to the amendment
"We're here to represent the taxpayers."

I guess that since most children aren't in a position to pay taxes, they don't deserve any consideration from elected officials.
