Will Conservatives Vote For Freedom or to Keep Democrats From a Majority?
by Devvy Kidd
The Republicans have held a majority in Congress since January 5, 1995. What does that mean? It means that on a straight party vote, the Republican majority could pass legislation and there's nothing the Democrats could do about it.

Proposition 86 is really about hospitals using our Constitution and laws to pocket millions for themselves and HMOs through a $2.1 billion tax hike. Section 9 even gives hospitals an exemption to antitrust laws! It's another lottery mess-and no guarantees on how the money will be spent. No on 86.
