Congratulations to our 2016 Legislature. You were once again able to ignore important problems and pass stupid and unfair laws. About 78,000 people without health insurance for years because we can’t possibly accept our own tax money back from the tyrants in Washington. The money will keep going to sane states not run by ideologues.
You passed more legislation interfering with a woman’s right to control her own body. Failed to end anti-gay blatant discrimination. Increased property taxes on residence so it can be given to businesses and other special interests (another Ada County slap down as most of the clowns don’t live in a town where there would be a property tax exemption of $100,000). Allowed the Bible in schools (Christianity trumps religious freedom).
What happened to our bottom-feeding educational system and our crumbling infrastructure?
Worst of all, you have allowed every wacko, gun nut, militia clown, felon, criminal, etc., to carry a concealed weapon anywhere (grocery stores, theaters, medical offices, restaurants, everywhere). At least before, I could leave an Albertson’s or Chili’s if I saw a moron with a pistol on his hip. No more. Thanks folks. Your subservience to the NRA is recognized, black helicopters are coming.
Never miss a local story.
