Yes I would..I read some of the amended bill that "appeared" at 3:00AM


How's about $500 for a permit to install a solar panel on your roof ?
Oh, are you a company doing this, well then that's a $10,000 permit.

The sheer amount of taxes, services and mandates that got added "late at night" is unbelievable.
Oh but if you are poor then you will get subsidized so that the low cost rent you pay now WILL NOT CHANGE.

300 pages ..I skimmed to about pg 120.

And doing the math by the amended bill..your utility costs will go up by up to 20% unless you're poor and then the government will pay that $20%...that was said by someone in the House during the talks.

Is this the same bill they just announced passed both the Senate and House by a slim margin?

I'm sure both parties do it, they're politicians. Never trust a politician.

Right you are. Hell, they seem to be more interested in the death of Jackson, the child molester. We are watching our country being taken from us right before our eyes.
