Quote from: Final Text
Right Wages for the Right Regions Act

1. The minimum wage established by the Living Wage Act shall be reduced to 10.50, the first wage increase authorized by the act.

2. The 12.00 wage shall remain in place for all regions, but shall no longer be the minimum, and regions shall be able to lower to the new minimum if they desire to, to better fit the realities of their economies.

3. The remainder of the Living Wage Act shall remain in effect.

I, for one, am glad that McIntrye might win. I liked Pantano way more the Rouzer. Don't care what anyone says, Pantano is a hero.

There is a reason I voted against Pantano, in spite of tremendous issues with Rouzer. And I am glad I did that because I don't think Pantano would have come that close.

I also didn't like the idea of being represented by someone way down in Wilmington, versus someone from right down the road (WE SHOULDN'T BE IN THIS DAMN DISTRICT Angry Angry Angry)

Doesn't this guy represent Athens?

I think so, they in fact helped propel him to victory in 2007, because the other guy was even worse.

Delco? No. The others possibly, but it depended on how well Romney ran his general election campaign, and we all know how that turned out.
15562  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: PPT and Committee thread for the 52nd Senate on: November 09, 2012, 11:46:52 pm
Nathan will have to decided whether or not to include you for the second committee. Technically you did go more then 48 hours after he opened the declarations, which is the stated times in the OP.

Just ask Ben Chandler about how surviving 2010 helped, Mr. Phips. Tongue


You harp on this but it is not the all and powerfull rule you think it is. It just means they are a strong candidate, it doesn't mean they are set for life. We knew Herseth-Sandlin was strong already so her being so close in 2010 doesn't really change the equation.

I didn't mean to second it yesterday, I meant to say "I definately will..."


So yes second withdrawn.


Not on your life Marokai. Tongue

So did Franzls, my post on that one appears to have vanished.
15570  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SENATE BILL: Blast From the Game Reform Past Amendment (Debating) on: November 09, 2012, 05:25:36 pm
When I came here in December 2008, the "Council of Governors" was a latent agenda item of the RPP. Over the course of the next year, I concluded it was a bad idea for several reasons.

1. You blurr the lines between excutive and legislative branches
2. You blurr the lines between federal and regional levels of gov't
3. It adds more work onto executives who if they are doing theirs jobs, have quite a lot on their plate already.

And lastly there are significant organizational hurdles to deal with to make sure it doesn't become an administrative mess. Look at how hard the committees have been to get running and then keep functioning.
15571  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SENATE BILL: Trade Agreement Re-evaluation Commission (Debating) on: November 09, 2012, 04:50:02 pm
I don't see a problem with re-evaluating the agreements. I am a free trade kind of guy. I did vote to water down Marokai's "Buy Atlasian" provisions in his 2009 stimulus and for several FTAs. That said, I don't beleive in wild west style free trade. There needs to be some basic rules that both sides have to follow and when that doesn't happen there have to be sanctions. To the extent that this will acheive that end, I am open to considering it.
15572  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SENATE BILL: Impeachment Clarification Amendment (Debating) on: November 09, 2012, 04:40:28 pm
The amendment has passed.


Does this have enough support? Start talking here people. Or I might turn your toes into a necklace.
15573  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SENATE BILL: Right Wages for the Right Regions Act (At Final Vote) on: November 09, 2012, 04:36:28 pm
Snap! Snap!


All 10 voted in less than 24 hours. "I can't believe this is happening..."  okay enough of Frampton


This has enough votes to pass, Senators have 24 hours to change their votes.

Well, I said Donnelly would win 51-43. He won 50-44. So I was pretty close. Wink

Every district voted exactly how I thought it would...except the 2nd. I expect Walorski to win by around 10 points - the district is much more friendly to her than 2010, and she faced a weaker opponent. I was completely shocked at how close that race was, but at least she held on! Smiley

Also, I'll officially jump on the bandwagon - Stutzman `18!!! Smiley

I thought he had his eyes set on 2016?
