  • Venue for the first meeting suggests it’ll be a Delphi get-together, structured so mainstream media can report loud, passionate public support for income and sales taxes
    .
    (which will be offset, of course, by pay raises for the public-sector union-management team in return for their loud, passionate public support).
    .
    The Republican Establishment is conducting these meetings because they’re worried about fallout from the Knopp debacle, and because they want fellow travelers to help undermine Governor Dunleavy’s budget.
    .
    It seems reasonable to ask whether this parody of public participation would be happening if Governor Dunleavy were Democrat, or if his budget included everything donors and buyers want.

  • I was at the Wool/Hopkins town hall, which was more an opportunity for Adam Wool to sell beverages! Didn’t,tstay long as Hopkins, my rep., took a long time mentioning every liberal idea under the sun. Likely I was the only private sector person there. Appeared everyone there was wanting a chance to blast Dunleavy and listen to the two reps talk about the sky falling. Hopkins mentioned this years medicaid bill for the state is 9 mil. And next years will be……….around 30 some mill. He didn’t see that as a problem with the large millions accompanying that number from the Feds!

  • Huge turnout in the Matsu! Lot’s of testimony, left, right and center.
