I see there was some more fuckwittery on display yesterday.
How is it that they’re allowed to play this brinksmanship and add all these stupid riders to the bill?
A few things stand out to me:
- Blocking the District of Columbia from using its own funds to set up regulatory systems for marijuana legalisation
So, just interfering at a federal level with a local policy, just because it’s DC and you can. Nice.
As I saw this described elsewhere:
The House Republican who could end up undoing a District of Columbia voter referendum to legalize marijuana has a blunt message for residents of the capital city: If you don’t like it, move out.
“That’s the way the Constitution was written,” Rep. Andy Harris of Maryland said in an interview Wednesday. “If they don’t like that oversight, move outside of the federal district to one of the 50 states that is not covered by the jurisdiction of Congress as a whole.”
- increasing the amount an individual person can contribute to a national political party from $32,400 to $324,000
What the fuck? The law, in its majestic equality…
