Once the government is free of waste and inefficiency, once useless governemt programs are cut, once legislature quit voting themselves pay raises, and once when the Gov submits a budget that doesn't acutally rely on raising taxes and cut the bloated government, and once the Queen recovers all the surplus she has spent on bloating the governement, I will agree with you. But, I think Hell will host the winter Olympics before that happens...
And before you begin whining about how you know because you work with a church, I do to, and what the state proposes and did is criminal.
Vote the bat-rastards out!
I SUPPORT temporarily repealing I-960. It is an entirely different time and economy than when we, the voters, approved I-960, which calls for an entirely different response. It's time to open our eyes and hearts (and wallets!) and deal with what's in front of us instead of plugging ears and chanting nyah, nyah, nyah, nyah. I work with my church's rental assistance program and we also administer a small publicly-funded (eg- taxpayer funded!) matching grant. Let me tell you that 1) dozens of people's homes and lives have been saved by this type of program and 2) the vast majority of the people helped are working stiffs like you and me who thought they'd never need the help, but by God they're happy it's there when THEY need it. Let's support our neighbors and take a larger view of the world than just what's in it for us. Because sometime, who knows, you just might need it for you.
We have been shown by our Legislature that we are no longer represented but rulled. I hope the short memoried voters of this state are happy.
Our legislators count on the fact that the voters in this state have the attention span of a 3 year old and will forget about this by the time the next election comes around.
Those of us who wish to be represented by people who listen to us need to be sure this is remembered untill all currently sitting politicians are replaced. Though the Republicans tried to vote against it they could have done more to bring this travisty to light but they didn't.
Though the outcome would have been the same, there would have been a bigger uproar against it. The legislature is a toilet and needs to be flushed! I for one will work hare to fire my representatives. They don't even have the guts to go on talk radio to justify their position.
