This is looking more and more like a pathetic JOKE, and we the people are once again the laughing stock… we will pay and pay and pay- or rather suffer and die while they make obscene profits.
Once again our supposed leaders vote to serve their own interests at the expense of public. If you think we live in a democracy, think again.
