Opening Arguments

Cause and effect

Maybe there should be a clinic or a rehab program for the easily shocked:

INDIANAPOLIS — Property tax bills for homeowners could jump by an average of nearly 24 percent statewide this year, according to a new estimate showing far bigger increases than had been previously predicted.

“This is shocking stuff,” Rep. Jeff Espich, R-Uniondale, said Tuesday. “This is the worst property tax news I've seen in 30-some years here.”

When I was in high school, we had an English teacher who made us compile huge notebooks each grading period. I hated them and always put off doing them until the last minute. I was then shocked to discover that finishing one would require an all-night session. But I was, you know, in high school. Shortly thereafter, I learned that there was a direct connection between things I did and didn't do and the consequences that resulted. No place for me in the General Assembly, I guess.

Wonderful analogy Leo. What you fail to realize is the much more important matters to be decided by the legislature.

For Gods' sake man! Interior designers aren't licensed! People are driving while using cellphones, hell their still smoking in bars!!!!!

What is wrong with your priorities????

Don't worry Republican Tom Wyss is working hard to ensure those who drive trucks must wear seat belts...

He has his priorities straight...

Another Big Government Republican working to help Hoosiers...

I don't think Kruse and Wyss qualify as Republicans anymore. They have veered so far into "nannyville" they cannot honestly call themselves republicans.
