Re: “Pick a reason

Chris Buzan,

Read the following the following excerpt from Jessica Mayrer's story:

The DOJ's settlement offer would mandate the county attorney's office hire at least two new staffers, an investigator and also a victim advocate. The prosecutor's office currently employs neither. Van Valkenburg estimates the expense of complying with the DOJ settlement, including the costs of hiring a consultant to oversee its implementation, would cost between $300,000 and $400,000 over a two-year period.

Re: “etc.

etc says: "Well, five years ago Missoulians had a gripe with local marijuana laws and put the issue on the ballot. That ought to be enough."

They're not local marijuana laws. They're state marijuana laws. Big difference.

Re: “Daschle book reveals deal that killed public option

"Baucus never gave the public option a chance?" What about "single payer?" He wouldn't even let anyone talk about it. In doing so, he did more to kill off most of the progressive support Obama and the Democrats desparately now need to survive the mid-term election.
