  •  sorry I wasn't bi-partisan enough for you (5+ / 0-)

    Thank you for helping to make my point that it is a systemic problem, not a partisan one. Although, I'm not sure where I claimed that no Democrats were culpable.

    I chose that link, from your quote, very carefully to show that politicians were looking at this mostly as a political football. My point was that the issues here are larger than partisan politics.

    This issue, to me, is about a hell of a lot more than politics and that is what I was trying to write about.

      The Sacramento Bee is definitely continuing with their reporting on how the Nevada Governor has not wanted to deal with it until it blew up. And it will be a big issue when the elections happen. So it does have ramifications for him as Governor who just happens to be Republican.

      My point was that even politicians who call themselves Democrats or even Progressives have few qualms about booting the homeless or poor over the state line.  

      This may not prove to be a scandal for the Governor of Nevada.  It may prove to be a viable strategy for re-election.
