I know, Scott, that you always want the final word in absolutely every thread so this is my final comment to you regarding Obama care. It has hurt millions more people than it has helped. I am sure you know of the 29/49 phenomena--workers hours reduced t0 29 hours a week, small businesses holding employment to 49 employees instead of the 56 employees they really need to be under OC threshold. The millions who lost their plans, the millions whose premiums have sky rocketed so do not give me your arguments about how helpful it has been. How about fairly weighing those helped against those hurt.
Funny, Scott, that you don't mention Obamacare which is by far the most unpopular legislation ever to come out of a President's office and was the main reason voters shifted their alliances. I think the electorate is telling us they want no more big govt interference. And what about this questionable Ebola czar? More of the same from this POTUS.
Dan, This election was not a tidal wave because the electorate is sooooo in love with the republicans and their candidates. This sweep was a statement from the citizens that they want Obama and his progressive agenda STOPPED! Pretty darn obvious that the media is spinning the results. This was much more than anti-incumbent sentiment considering McConnell was re-elected. The independents came out in force for a different agenda.
Scott, Get over yourself and stop over analyzing this race! Cari and Steve are both well known and competent candidates and the electorate was torn. Too bad that they were not each running for different offices because they both have a compassion to serve the public and have the experience. $$ had absolutely nothing to do with the outcome!! Go get some air!!!
Congrats, Cari!! All your hard work paid off----now, a question---How do we fix the mess at the airport?
As to the national election--The tidal wave for the GOP was NOT because the republicans and their agenda was sooooo loved by the electorate, but that the country wants Obama, progressives, liberals and their agenda STOPPED and by electing dems that could not happen.
Plus we are Bike Town USA, now instead of Ski Town USA so the summer business will continue to build as the winter business falls--ask retailers how their July numbers compare to their March numbers and the trend becomes very clear. Very few tourists fly in July so just another reason to let the tax supported airline guarantee sunset!!
Short, concise and exactly correct. If one thinks back to this vote it is one more example of an uneducated public voting on the "scare tactics" put up by said private corporation. It never even occurred to me or fellow "thinking" voters that this could possibly pass. After all who in their right mind votes to punish themselves in a down economy by agreeing to pay more taxes to benefit a private corporation. Any hope I had for the local voting public went out the window with this vote . . . . . .
It is nice to know we have an advocate in the taxpayers corner!!
Chuck, Chris, CHUCK---A good man and by far the best choice as our representative!!
I miss Ski Town USA when we had a passionate, devoted yet friendly bike town in the "off season." I miss seeing elk on Emerald mountain, in fact I miss hiking on Emerald mountain without getting yelled at to get off the trails. I miss Steamboat . . . . . (there must be a song in here somewhere. LOL)
