All I read is: we had a bill with unanimous support, and put reparations in it to make it unlikely to pass the Senate.
How much salary did this cost us? How many decades must pass with our representatives trying to add pork and getting bills shut down?
Just decriminalize it, and it's fucking done!
People who got popped knew the risks. It's not like we're all miranda and don't know the law.
Just write a straight up bill and let us pass it.... Fuck!
So sick of bleeding hearts trying to slip a second meaning into everything, and fucking it all up.
We just need to decriminalize it federally ASAP. Everybody wins.
What are we gonna do, sue our dead grandparents for voting poorly? How about taxing boomers for their co2 emissions over their lifetime?
Just write a bill with ONE PURPOSE, and we can move on. It's been common sense to legalize this shit for 50+ years.... But we have republicans saying "we don't know the long term effects" like fucking douchebags, and now we have Democrats adding unrealistic reparations into it.
Democrats support reparations, thanks for the news flash. Republicans don't. What a pointless exercise!
We could pass this shit by the end of the year if they would just stay on topic.
Vote for reparations in a separate bill for fucks sake... They don't need many republican votes, but they are gonna get like 3.
Can nobody reach across the isle anymore?
