Governor Tomblin and dems see support dwindling drastically for them in upcoming election!

Nothing but a political move by the dems/Governor! And once these folks lose their jobs because of stupid political moves by this Governors move, the WILL be hearing from their whining constituents. You can count on it! Of course these liberals will 'blame employers' because they're just that stupid!

LOLOL; I see the legislators' mouthpieces have arrived to ATTEMPT to defend the UNDEFENDABLES!

Democrats' stupidity ADMITTING a flawed bill and then passing it anyway is UTTER STUPIDITY and deserves voter retribution in November! And boy will we show them how little we think they deserve self-giving pay raises!!!

THIS is a POLITICAL bill because the PEOPLE are fed up with liberal stupidity and stupid laws they keep passing and causing HARM to the very folks they CLAIM they want to help. It does the "opposite!"

The author asks.."Why should we trusts them now?" Because we have no choice. The lawmakers have volumes of information the common citizen doesn't. Government is here to stay and no amount of screaming about one party of the other will change that. The law will be tweaked in May, just like the Governor says.

True to an extent. If you look up who all voted for this in the legislature you will also find Republicans. Do legislators want to be re-elected? Sure! But many are only paid as much as a part time job. That kind of puts the word service into consideration. Aside from being legislators which most likely takes as much time as a full time job, they have to ensure they have another means of income. Let's be a little more realistic here before trash talking our state legislators. If we have a problem we aught to contact them. Just sayin.

This is an example of a democrats illogical thinking. Don't try to figure it out; it makes no sense; has no benefit except a few extra votes for them because that's all this is about. They don't care if all this overspending kills jobs or people; as long as the arrogant power hungry egos of democrats get what they want; re-elected!

Democrats...this is as stupid as Obamacare. You're right TopGUn!

The Broken Window Theory of Obamacare:

Pretend the government started selling car windows and then mandated everyone own government-approved car windows.

Then, government employees come to punch out your car window.

Bam! The government declares its new window business a huge success!

Ah, Barack Tomblin strikes again. I want to see how Tomblin explains the loss of jobs due to this admittedly "flawed" piece of legislation. Didn't we hear the same rhetoric about amending the healthcare bill once it was passed? Has it happened? No, and it won't, just like this piece of legislation will go without fixing it. They got their play toy in place, and now it will be pushed to the side burner where it will forever stay in its original state.
