I like how you didn't waste time on the Billionaire's Tunnel, which everyone knows is already dead.
See you at the dance party Saturday!
You're talking about Patty, right? That description almost fits Maria, but last I heard, Patty was still a complete lightweight who depends on her staff for what little she accomplishes. When did her rep change? (This is a serious question from a liberal Dem.)
now go back to sleep in the turnip truck.
If your ideas don't create jobs or make the state and city some "hard cold cash" you are poking pickles at a meat grinder.
So far, there is NO healthcare reform; only a House Bill and a Senate Bill separated by a Columbia Gorge-sized philisophical abyss. When the House eventually rolls over for the pharma-friendly Senate template, it will indeed "reform" healthcare, but without slowing the meteoric rise of costs and without a fucking public option, and sure as hell without the one true vehicle of reform: a single payer system.
Patty Murray is nothing but a patsy for the DNC and has sold the State of Washington and her nation out in favor of her own career.
Where was Patty when Chris Dodd was screwing the nation over for his own personal gain? Shall we chat about ACORN, SEIU, and sub par healthcare reform????
The DNC right now smells to most Americans like a rotting gangrenous puss infused jackass; as bad as they have in over 100 years.
3 term Patty was there and SAID NOTHING.
Patty needs to go
Purity is a one track run to losing.
PM is on the duller end of the knife collection, a backup 6-10 ppg guard, a solid .240 hitter w/ acceptable glove. But seniority counts for a lot in the useless & decrepit House of Lords, uh, Senate, and she's been surrounded w/ good people. Enough to get some good progressive legislation passed in the future owing to her longevity.
You advocate breaking a deal that was made over a decade ago when the First Hill Station was dropped. If the 12th Avenue or Broadway-only alignments are chosen rather than a Broadway/Boren option then these "patients", (obviously people whom you have left out of your analysis), will be required to hail Metro Axxess or a taxi to get from the 12th Avenue station to ANY of the hospitals. Are you willing to pay their cab fares out of your own pocket?
Those "hospitals" (Swedish, Harborview, Polyclinic, Virginia Mason) collectively employ over 20,000 people and see over a million "patients" a year.
The 12th Avenue alignment would only benefit developers and those interested in gentrification.
Makes one think you are closet Nichols supporters for your stand on this position.
And if you put it on 12th, I give you 5 years before you're writing an article about the new development attracting people, and pushing out the very under-served people you want to help.
