Good video. Barber spoke the truth.

I am so appreciative of the fact that we live in the Information Age. Politics will have to change as a result -- they can't keep the truth from getting out.

I then asked Rep. Cotham if she was aware of move for the House to vote on a separate bill. She responded:
"No, I am not. I have heard rumblings that they want to drug test and require community service."
Tillis could separate a bill from the budget, yet tie EB to a bunch of other conditions.

The problem with that is it could result in court challenges. A state can not make law that contradicts federal law. Tillis knows this. I fear this whole "new, separate bill" thing is another delaying and diversionary tactic.
