Prayers for the family

Just another tax and spend politician. Now he wants to tax people with electric vehicles, for not buying his owners' gas. Can't wait to see what the government will force us to buy next!

PLEASE vote no on HB547/SB491.

It doesn't seem all that long ago that Republican insurrectionists - armed with rifles, chemical weapons, clubs, etc. - attacked our Capitol and left law enforcement officers wounded and killed. Please spare the country you faux political support of law enforcement in an attempt to curry votes and financial support.

You've taken a hippocratic oath to do no harm yet you are a sell out to dirty Big Oil & gas. Shame on you.

How about Brian Sicknick? I don't recall anyone in your party caring about his life, taken by right wing traitors storming the Capitol on 1/6 at the behest of Donald Trump.

We need gun control. Not prayer.

You want people to pay an extra tax for not using fossil fuels, cause you’re a fossil. You’re a terrible person, from a real American, from a state that subsidizes you, you pathetic half wit.
