[quote user="harrynevus"]Manny Maroun: With enough money stuffed in republican pockets, one man has stopped the government from building a bridge that would benefit the economies and hundreds of thousands of citizens in several positive ways in TWO countries.[/quote]
Certainly Maroun is trying to build his own bridge vs. the multi-billion dollar project down river. However, the argument that the DRIC project would benefit "hundreds of thousands of citizens" is questionable. The project would certainly benefit thousands of union construction workers and their companies. It would also place additional hardship on hundreds of thousands of taxpayers, many of whom would get absolutely no benefit from the bridge.

The insurance companies want no part of allowing people to ride without helmets. They fought this legislation tooth and nail.
[quote user="harrynevus"]This Death/Disability Insurance on Auto Loans: [/quote]
This legislation does not force consumers to buy insurance, it forces insurance companies to expand coverage on a certain type of policy. The effect of this legislation will be to increase the price of GAP insurance, thus causing fewer people to purchase it, thus causing insurance companies to sell less and make less profit and causing finance companies to incur greater risks. As usual, the consumer loses.
It doesn't matter whether it's Republicans or Democrats. They all want to take away our rights.
Re: 2011 Senate Bill 616 (Impose death or disability mandate on car loan coverage ) by gypsy on May 22, 2012 This bill illuminates the Republican lie that they want government out of our lives. What they really want is government working with business to lessen risk and increase profits to those businesses.
Rational people see the connection between big government and big business.
