Somervell Democrats had a constitutional amendments meeting last night

30 October 2007 at 10:20:41 AM

Pretty good. Ron Hankins went over, open discussion style, each one of the 16. Most of them I think I will vote yes on, ESPECIALLY the one that will require a recorded vote on most votes from the Texas Legislature. A couple I still want to research and will probably vote no on, for sure; one is the cancer money. I think everyone wants to fight cancer but I want to know some particulars about the program and why the US Federal government is not dealing with this through grants. Did the Republicans, when they were in power, cut grant money for cancer programs? Or else why isn't it that, as I understand the process, universities are not applying for the grants through, say, HHS? How is it going to be administered? Is there any chance the money could be diverted to other interests down the road? Why is this a constitutional amendment? The other one I have qualms about is giving money to TxDot, who's been poor-mouthing how they have no money recently, even while they're spending money on PR to push toll roads.

Anyway, overall, though, it was terrif, very informative, and good to be with other Democrats!

Just one question on this one...

When they DO find the cure for cancer, who do you think will get it?  The general population or some wealthy family? 

Unfortunately, the state will take BILLIONS of our tax dollars to provide the health provider community with more money whether or not they find a cure.  Then if a cure is found, you can bet none of us will be able to afford it.

It's a bogus proposition.
