Margy if you got a problem with the bill proposed altho it has not passed, there are forms to contact your state congress representative on the site. ??
I am usually told to add the source and in fact I have added the link from snopes .
When you post a question or article, you must post the source as well. It is not encumbant on those responding to provide it for you. Did you not help make that rule? I found this in Open Congress.org ..... What do I think about it? Well it never got voted on and is officially dead in the water, but it dont sound too damn bad to me. And you thought he did not have a plan!
