    The States. It's 10th Amendment or bust!

    The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
    OK, I'm naive.

    You may think what you may of George Will. This column is correct.

    It is bad enough the bill wants to define birth control as abortion (which is patently false) but the sponsor of the bill is a massive loonbat!

    If you're out of WaPo views this month, Google: George Will tsunami and read it on National Review.

    The generic problem in the public sector is the moral hazard at the weakly beating heart of what Walter Russell Mead calls the “blue model” of governance — the perverse incentives in the alliance of state and local elected Democrats with public employees’ unions.
    I know this will make some unhappy, but isn't that exactly what Scott Walker took on in Wisconsin?

    That is what they believe and I would contend is exactly what America voted for. Anyone with half a brain knows this is the Republican agenda.

    Maybe if Republicans treated state employees with respect, they'd get more votes from them.

    They say they want to run government like a business, well name me a successful business where upper management goes out of its way to insult its employees.

    Will has a point about the actuarial assumed return on investment. But the moral hazard argument is simply sour grapes. Funny how it's not a moral hazard when business owners vote for Republicans who then screw over everyone else by giving away tax breaks left and right.

    You can't.

    In the private sector I've seen a couple mass exoduses after "mahogany row" insulted the work force.
    What I don't understand is why folks that are abused (politcos dis'n gov't employees) like you cite don't leave.

    Republicans love George Will when he speak on their behalf, shun him otherwise. I enjoy his takes more often than not.

    But George had the business sense to die in the year when the estate tax was 0.0000%.

    Of course, his heirs inherited his basis so when they sell, there will be (well may be) a whopper of a capital gains tax.

    Don't tell me Minnesota can't go red. Look at these two maps...

    This should concern not just Minnesotans, but every liberal. These are the pragmatic blue state DFLers that shifted heavily red.

    It's a concern if Trump actually brings back those mining jobs(or slaves, if we're talking MN2) like he promised. I'll take my chances.

    Yeah, but on empty promises. The only question is how those voters react when it becomes obvious that Trump was just talking out of his as-s. They may just fall for the next Republican who lies to them. I have always said I want the Democratic candidates to go into dead industry areas and yell "I will do everything in my power to get your jobs back!" That's not a lie, because there is literally NOTHING anybody can do. But it beats Democrats suggesting that they switch to growing Belgian endives.
