*sighs*

Now do we have to wait for congress?

I have so little faith in congress though, since the majority are white and rich... It's been shown there are more millionaires in congress by percentage than represented by the general population. Not to mention that the majority are white male, so it's not as if this affects them directly.

I feel uneasy... especially with what Texas pulled...

I recommend John Oliver's concise synopsis of why this is a terrible idea:

I don't understand why this happened at all . . . but then reading slhuang's link makes it all more clear.
