We haven't learned from Atlantic City?

The answer to any government problem is to throw more money at it.

My wife has been a patient at Ellis for may years. Their care WAS excellent. Lately we used the new Emergency Room 4 times (At Night) and found the new ER to be extremely poor. They just push you aside until the day shift comes on. Nurses were showing each other their vacation photos to each other on their IPhones. (My wife usually requiring a ventilator & ICU admission) They did not find her fractured hip after a battery of X-rays and C-scans, until a second admission . Her hip was never scanned at the first admission! How are they going to handle an additional number of patients from the Old St Clares?

Sounds friends of mine that don't drive got an ID at their local police dept. Some of them do not vote. The "they" people produce more ID than a photo ID to get benefits from social services. Our voting system is too "Fraud-Friendly". If voting takes a little effort for someone to get a govt approved ID, too bad.

I agree. Throwing more money in a bottomless pit would accomplish little.

INSANE COMMENTS. An ID to vote makes sense. How many of these poor people have the latest iPhone? Voting is not the only reason to have an ID. By the the same logic, one should be able to collect from Social Services without ID. They have no problem producing an ID for that!!

Don't understand the comment of making this Democracy more "Voter-friendly". I support some form of voter ID to make the outcome less "Fraud-friendly".

Its like placing a High Priced book cover on the same problem. The crackheads and entitled people will still be there.

I've noticed that a reasonable gas price is about 70 - 80 cents above wholesale. If you check out the Bloomberg/commodities website, the wholesale is about 2.25/gal. Local gas stations have been overchargeing us for some time.
