Re: Oklahoma destroying freedom

But that's the expense that must be covered, somehow. In your monthly utility bill you're paying for the generation of the electricity, of course, but you're also paying the utility to maintain high voltage lines, transformer stations, and the [more]

Re: Epidemic of GOPer virus will kill thousands

You can think whatever you want about the projections. They are merely the costs as scored by the CBO, which is used by both parties to basically say whatever they want. I'm sure people can disagree about them. I personally think CBO projections are [more]

Re: Epidemic of GOPer virus will kill thousands

How can any state deny Medicaid expansion when the federal government will pay for it all for three years at which time the entire cost will be paid by the states which are struggling to pay for the current medicaid costs?

Re: Oklahoma destroying freedom

As the use of solar power skyrockets across the U.S., fights have sprung up in several states over how much customers should be compensated for excess power produced by their solar panels and sold back to the grid — a policy known as net metering. [more]

Re: NY governor signs 'National Popular Vote' bi

Re: Would be free today for a sentence never served.

Common sense says this guy should get his sentence commuted. Put him on parole for 13 year if you want to, but thowing him in jail now will accomplish nothing but harm.

Re: NY governor signs 'National Popular Vote' bi

If I understand the Constitution correctly, state legislatures can chose electors in almost any way that they like. Flip a coin. Pick a name out a hat. Legislative vote. In-state popular vote. Whatever. If you don't like the method they choose, [more]

Re: O'Reilly Pretty Racist

The old system was stupid.

Unfortunately, while the new system is less stupid, it still contains plenty of stupid. An obvious further improvement would be decoupling health insurance from employment. I would also support preemption of [more]

Re: Another conviction overturned

They need to forget about the misconduct and charge the prosecutor with being an acesory to murder.

Re: Ripped off by the rich
