Baker Pays Off Political Debt With Petty Veto

Picknelly's firm is subsidized by the government far more than AMTRAK because the state pays for the roads. It's not efficient at all but, in fact, massively inefficient because we have to pay 100% of their biggest cost.

NOTE: Counting Delegates Honestly, Clinton Won

Clinton went +5 (6-1) in the Virgin Islands, and +12 (36-24) in Puerto Rico, over the weekend. She will almost certainly net a majority of pledged delegates on Tuesday. If she does, what's Sanders' argument? That the supers should back him instead, and undo the will of the voters, because he's polling better than her against Trump in some polls? That would be, frankly, crazy. - promoted by david
