He repeated it was a STAND ALONE bill and there should be no way she would veto it!!!! I couldn't thank him enough. The end is in SIGHT!!!!
If this happens, it will be such a blessing...A STAND ALONE bill is and has been the answer all along...unfortunately I do not trust them.

Did he say how this finally came to discussion?

What kind of responses have we had from Sager before? Is he the type to tow the party lines with his responses in the past? Just curious how he's acted before?

Anyone with the ability to listen to the GA to see what is happening, with the short session if this is indeed going on it would have to be now.

I'm trying to listen to fianance audio, and appropriations audio...don't hear anything yet, just talk of health care. Hopefully this is all behind the scenes, maybe there starting to think about possible reprocussions. I posted greg's post last night about people starting to riot if this doesn't resolve soon. I put it on the FB page about reinstate benefits, got many responses. People are PISSED about this, rightfully so. This whole episode is just heartless and dispicable.

I truly hope this is it, may god bless us all...

I emailed Rep Rick Glazier a democrat and this was his response about the standalone that Sager mentioned:
That would be great and we are hopeful that is being done. She will sign and we would pass a stand alone bill in a heartbeat. Rick

I hope that this is true, I will be so grateful.

Man it is tough enough to be in this situation without work. I, like many of you, have never been unemployed my entire life until the mass layoff my company had. I served honorably in the military, I worked in the tobacco fields as soon as I was old enough,bagged groceries in high school. I AM SO TIRED OF PEOPLE SAYING WE ARE LAZY!!!!. I know I should just let it run off my back like water, but reading comments like on WRAL an other places gets to me sometimes. HATEMONGERS I tell you.
