Michael Sanchez hates poor people

How else do you explain his refusal to bring legislation to a vote that would have preserved $5.5 million in federal funding for Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF).

The bill, HB 12, breezed through the House on a 63-0 vote, yet Sanchez never brought the bill to the floor for a vote and even was the lone vote against it in the Senate Committee that heard it.

Now, there are certainly dozens of other policies that New Mexico’s Legislature has enacted over the years that continue to keep us poor, but if you believe in government welfare as Sanchez clearly does, how can you not push HB 12 through the Legislature?
