Tate Reeves blasts Mississippi House for voting down teacher pay raise

In case you think Republicans all get along. The lieutenant governor's verbatim response, sent earlier today:

STATEMENT OF LT. GOV. REEVES ON HOUSE VOTE AGAINST TEACHER PAY PLAN

“Unfortunately, the House voted today against teachers getting $3,500 more in their paycheck by July 1, 2015. I had hoped this week Gov. Bryant could sign a significant teacher pay increase that included merit pay and was within our budget, but the House let political posturing win over increased teacher pay.”
