Knight rains on tea party
Rep. John Knight, D-Montgomery, was talking about the tea party protesters who gathered in Montgomery and at hundreds of other locations throughout the nation.
"Without some help from somewhere, from above or Washington, this state would be in terrible shape," he said.
Knight, who said he walked through the audience and listened, said he understands people do not want to pay new taxes, but "it is unfortunate people demagogue on an issue like that in this state."
He said he was curious what those protesting would say if there were not state troopers on the road to protect people or if people could not get the proper medical care because their Medicaid was cut.
