DeLeo's betrayal of the public on Term Limits

The Speaker of the Massachusetts House of Representatives did a disservice to Democrats and democracy yesterday. By scheduling a vote on ending the Speaker's term limits without any time for public discussion, he disenfranchised the voters of Massachusetts.

We should remember that he is Speaker of the house. It is not the Speaker's House; it is the people's House.

Let us hope that, at the next election,  the primary voters in his district remember this betrayal and oust Mr. De Leo from the legislature.
