Isn’t it interesting how the Left wants “choice,” but when it comes to business and jobs they are all about restricting and holding down opportunity.

Successful forum first in a series on issues that matter to New Mexicans:
What the Democrats want:
- NM needs to have a pre k-20 education system that’s better than surrounding states.
Reality: While the Democratic Party of New Mexico claims they want kids to go from pre-K to community college level they’re not taking steps to ensure children will have such opportunities. Shouldn’t the money follow the kids instead of the kids following the money? We must either put kids first or teachers first. Which will it be? Sure doesn’t seem like the Democrats have been putting kids first…aren’t teachers unions closely aligned with the Democrats?…And Democrats have been in control for decades, so if their strategy has not been working, why will using failed tactics for a Few more years help fix the problem? It is also unrealistic and unpractical to say every student needs to attend two years of college. Every youth is different. Why is diversity being killed?
- NM needs a long term strategy for economic development, not just quick fixes
Yes, and “sustainability” isn’t the answer. I realize the lifestyle that the Left condones (same sex partners and high abortion rate) will be sustainable for a few years with your counter development plans, but for those who are different than you, regulating businesses, killing the oil and gas industry, and making it difficult on employers by raising the minimum wage isn’t going to help. It is downright selfish!
- Green jobs are the future and local businesses need to hire local labor
Yeah…and because green jobs are the future you’re trying to kill “non-green” jobs and force people to move to greener pastures like Texas and Arizona. Look around your neighborhood…people are moving away because they can’t make ends meet. Local labor cannot be a reality unless we have a New Mexico that cultivates a business-friendly environment!
- Gov. Martinez will not fill 3400 state government jobs, left vacant. Why?
Maybe because Martinez’ administration is more efficient than Richardson’s and lacks his corruption issues? How many hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars did the Richardson administration spend funding vacant positions?
- Bernalillo County is getting ready to launch a high-tech district
And Albuquerque has a mayor who doesn’t buy into the Democrat’s kill-the-economy plan, right?
- Wage theft impoverishes all families in New Mexico
Raising the minimum wage sounds great, but it’s a business killer and an unneeded form of regulation at a time when New Mexican families need jobs. Please don’t chase workers out of New Mexico and into neighboring states by forcing the closing of businesses across our state!

In this blogpost I simply took the Democrats Party of New Mexico jobs forum “highlights” and explained what they really mean. DPNM is working to kill our New Mexico economy and stop growth.
In closing, DPNM Chairman Shreddin’ Sam Bregman has some words for us:
“ In the end, it’s getting the job done for New Mexico families,” commented DPNM Chairman Sam Bregman. “…We’re building the future.”
The future? The future looks bleak if Democrats continue to hold onto the economy and kill businesses and jobs!
