- Maybe non-Hillary supporters are aware that she condoned, abetted, and protected her sexual predator husband for decades, maybe they did not want a sexual predator back roaming the halls of the White House.
- Maybe non-Hillary supporters are aware that she cannot be trusted with vital information as the President since she obviously could not be trusted to guard and protect classified information when she was Secretary of State.
- Maybe non-Hillary supporters did not trust her because she deleted over 30,000 emails from an illegal and unsecured computer server and used a specific program to make sure those emails stayed deleted and were untrackable.
- Maybe non-Hillary supporters looked at her Senate record and found that in her entire tenure she was able to get only three pieces of legislation passed that she was a primary sponsor of, especially since one of the three named a post office and another of the three named a highway.
- Maybe they looked at her hypocrisy of being critical of Wall Street banks in public but supportive of them in private, especially when they gave you very rich speaking fees.
- Maybe they were just tired of her lies, from the true cause of the Benghazi attack (it was NOT some obscure video) to her landing under fire when visiting Bosnia (you did NOT land under fire) to saying all of her grandparents were immigrants (they were NOT), etc.
- Mr. Will pointed out that the city political class recently passed a tax law that put a $1.18 city tax on each bottle of two liter soda sold within the city limits. This is supposed to reduce the amount of sugary drinks that city residents purchase and thus somehow reduce obesity.
- However, we have previously reported in this blog that when other cities (e.g. Philadelphia) tried this method of taxing its residents into health, it failed miserably since city residents just drove out of town to purchase the now much cheaper soda, they incurred more carbon emissions by doing so (something that liberal politicians hate), and this behavior helped wreck the financials of small and large grocers within the city limits who not only lost soda sales but other food sales when people did their soda and grocery shopping elsewhere which increased city unemployment.
- Seattle previously had ordered that the minimum wage in the city be raised over time to $15 an hour, a move that has resulted in businesses closing and people being laid off or their hours reduced because employers cannot afford this minimum wage dictate.
- The city politicians did this anyway despite the reality that a published study they requested from the University of Washington to justify their minimum wage move actually proved that it would an economic disaster: “[the study] concluded that the costs to low-wage Seattle workers have been three times larger than the benefits. Using a richer trove of data and more sophisticated statistical methods than have been available for other studies of minimum wages, the report concluded that Seattle’s still-advancing increase has cost more than 5,000 jobs, and that workers whose wages were increased to comply with the new minimum lost an average of $125 a month as employers reduced their hours.”
- Despite these clear cut findings, the local politicians went ahead with the minimum wage increase anyway with the predicted study results actually occurring.
- Undeterred by the negative fallout of their economic ignorance, the city politicians installed a city income tax, a move that is clearly both in violation of current Washington state law and constitution and common sense since we have shown in this blog a number of times that raising taxes quite often results in LESS tax revenue since people most affected by the higher or new tax rates just leave the district where the higher or new tax rate is being applied.
- According to a recent Washington Examiner article, hundreds of thousands of veterans are still waiting over a month to get an appointment at a VA facility.
- VA documents found that there are currently over 184,520 veterans across the country who have waited over a month to get an appointment to see a VA doctor and 45,000 have waited over 90 days to get a medical appointment.
- In addition, there are a whopping 479,239 veterans waiting for physician requested follow up appointments who have waited over 30 days.
- In the Phoenix VA facility there are 3,328 local veterans who have waited over 30 days for care.
- Which is really scary since you would think and hope that if any VA facility would be operating efficiently it would be that one since it suffered through the scandal of at least 293 veterans dying before they could get VA care several years ago. Obviously, the embarrassing scandal did nothing to kick start improvements there.
