  • Valor7: Actually no it is not, a dependable Revenue stream will not come on line until the 4th quarter of 2017 so 2018 budget will be up in the air, not quite sure what they will have. By 2019 budget all will be well.

  • Valor7: I could have worded that better, we talked details, options, the pros and cons of each, in  order to arrive at the best ballot language to present to the voters. Hope that makes this clearer.

  • Valor7: sorry about the typos still working with just one arm in action
    April 13, 2016, 01:10:42 PM
  • Valor7: Yes and no. We talked details and options until we were blue in the face but I never heardbring it over, it was always the time was not right for the issue to pass. Glad to see the time in now right and I for one shall vote yes on the ballot. I would urge all others to do the sameour county is busting at the seams crimewise and no matter how many bad guys we send off there always seems to someone to replace them. The Sheriff's Office needs the help.

Poll: Americans Give Democratic Congress All-Time Low Rating
Thursday , June 21, 2007

WASHINGTON

Democrats pledged to take Congress in a new direction when it won control in November 2006, but less than six months after taking the reins, Americans aren't pleased with the results, giving lawmakers an all-time low public confidence rating.

In a Gallup poll released Thursday, only 14 percent of Americans have a "great deal" or "quite a lot" of confidence in Congress, a Gallup poll reports.

The poll shows an all-time lowest confidence rating and one of the lowest ratings for any institution in 30 years. The lowest confidence rating for Congress was 18 percent during 1991 to 1994. In 1994, the House switched from a Democratic to Republican majority after 40 years of one-party rule.

In the latest poll, the Supreme Court also received an all-time low rating of 34 percent while confidence has been at or above 50 percent over the last few decades.

Americans rank the most confidence in the military, with the least confidence in HMOs and Congress, when asked about 16 societal institutions.

The poll, conducted June 11-14, interviewed 1,007 national adults over the age of 18. The margin of sampling error is plus or minus 3 percentage points.

The poll gave the National Republican Senatorial Committee plenty of fodder to complain about congressional Democrats. The NRSC issued a statement saying the poll shows Americans don't like the job Democrats are doing.

"In six months, Democrat congressional leadership has managed to bring it all back to where they began at the lowest congressional confidence levels in Gallup's history at least we know Democrats can be successful at something," NRSC spokeswoman Rebecca Fisher said in a statement.

Sorry 02.  I should never have put Democrat and Success in the same posting.  I just could not resist.

Did anyone expect performance given that Bush is still in office? The ratings will increase when they aren't opposed or opposing at every turn, I'd imagine.
Heck is where people go when they don't believe in Gosh.

 The democrat led congress was able to do something when Reagan was president,the republican congress was able to do something when bubba was in office. What is the problem with the current democrat led congress? They want to raise taxes, they want to micromanage a war they voted for, they do not want a tough immigration bill, they do not to reform social security. They do not want to do anything of substance.

Let the Dems actually propose something with practicality, rather than idealistic in nature.
