The election's over, and I think we got a pretty good result. It's best when there's more than one party in power. That means that there has to be some level of debate over most issues. The congress will still probably be willing to give itself a raise without too much debate, but that's almost unavoidable.
Locally, the Transportation Amendment passed, and I am not pleased. The law is poorly written, and using the constitution to change the funding of transportation seems like a bad idea to me. I do approve of funding public transportation, but this is just the wrong way to do it.
