Richard: We haven't forgotten we're Republicans

Governor-elect Jay Nixon says he is willing to work with Republicans, but naturally, some Republicans do not seem eager to help Nixon reach his goals. Incoming Speaker of the House Ron Richard expressed a willingness to work with Nixon, but said not to expect Republicans to change their basic beliefs:

"Unlike Washington, D.C., we haven't forgotten we're Republicans," Richard said. "We're here to stand for what we believe: low taxes, education, energy, economic development. We're going to stay true on some issues that we believe got us here."

Well, except for bowling alleys. They need all the government help they can get. Perhaps a bill exempting them from sales taxes would be a good Republican value?
