Re: “Gov. Nathan Deal's great Medicaid escape

The most dastardly part of all of this is not even mentioned in this article.......
Think about it, Deal (and any GOP Guvnahh) is never going to go along with a Medicaid expansion, so taking the authority out of his hands really does not mean anything..
The real goal is to make sure that just in case Jason Carter (or some other Dem) gets elected Governor, there will be no way for that person to expand Medicaid without the legislatures help - which is never going to happen until we flip the legislature to Dems, which is never going to happen.....
So essentially, no Mediciad expansion ever, unless for some reaon the GOP leaders have a change of heart (or grow a heart) or decide that at some point down the road it is in their best political interest to expand. The truly sad part about all of this? The folks that elected these clowns blocking the expansion are the majority of folks that would benefit from the expansion......BENGHAZI!

Re: “A Millennial's argument for the T-SPLOST

I was in San Antonio this weekend and noticed that their Historic Riverwalk was a WPA project. Just imagine what would NOT have been built had past generations failed to realize the importance (and economic stimulus) of such projects?
We can no longer stick our heads in the sand and pretend that our traffic problems are just going to go away - they will not! - there is no plan B and the opposition knows this.....
The time is now for Georgians to vote in a concerted effort to Keep GA Moving!
Vote YES on July 31st for the TSPLOST and improve the lives of every Georgian!!

Re: “Graffiti artist Vomet strikes a deal, takes probation

It's "street art" until it ends up on your property and you have to pay to have it cleaned up.....
I don't think the punishment fit the crime because I think they should have done 30 in the clink - lets see if they make good on the restitution payments!
It's a fact that neighborhoods covered in useless tags and graffiti are less desirable - the city should do everything they can to make life hard for clowns like "vomet"

Re: “The high price of hope

All the more reason to elect RJ Morris as Fulton County Tax Commissioner on July 31st - gotta start the clean up of this housing mess somewhere & RJ has vowed to set up a system to negotiate with tax payers over taxes owed on their now declining properties - I know it is only slightly related to this story but it just shows how we have to clean up the system before we can move forward - Remember, vote RJ Morris for Tax Commissioner on July 31st - http://electrjmorris.com/

Re: “'Widening highways... does not reduce congestion over the long term'

No one claims that the TSPLOST will "end" congestion - the goal is to reduce congestion and work on alternatives to highway travel - The TSPLOST project list contains projects that when all added together, will improve commute times in and around the City of Atlanta & the state of GA.
Claiming that the project list is flawed because it does not "end" congestion is like claiming that we should do nothing about pollution if our plan does not "end" pollution - that's insane - you are never going to "end" congestion in any city the size of Atlanta but you can take measures to reduce congestion and improve ease of travel and movement.....
Get it together CL, your last few articles on this subject have sorely missed the target and you are presenting misleading "facts"......let me know if you need some help getting the story straight!

Re: “Mark your calendars: CL to host free panel discussion about transportation tax — and you're invited

This is not a "right" or "left" issue - the legislation has bi-partisan support from both the Governor and the Mayor of Atlanta - this is a great opportunity to show the country that compromise is not a sign of weakness as all parties will benefit across the board!
I encourage everyone with questions to attend and educate themselves about the process and the projects!
