Re: “Slaughter’s impact on Rochester was deep

Jan, here is an article from the Washington Post explaining what the process was for passing ACA. So no, the people in congress did not know what was in it, nor did the happy use and senate reconcile any differences.

Re: “Slaughter’s impact on Rochester was deep

Jan, two links are below. The first one shows that Slaughter avoided town hall meetings in 2009.the second is that as head of the rules committee, she pushed to have the senate version deemed to have been already pass d by the house. No debate or,discussion. Hence, nobody,in the house knew what was in it. And they did not hammer out,differences.

Re: “Slaughter’s impact on Rochester was deep

I lived in the Rochester area for about 20years while Slaughter was the representative. Frankly, with one exception, I cannot think of anything she ever did that was to my general benefit. I do remember her avoiding any town hall meetings at the time the ACA was being discussed, claiming that she already knew what her constituents wanted. I think she really did not want it shown publicly that many were not in favor. And I also remember her rushing the legislation through without knowing what was in it. So while it is too bad that she died, I think it is a good thing for Monroe County.

Re: “Rules for asylum-seekers change at Batavia Facility

Might be interesting to note that the Supreme Court ruled today that immigrants can be held,indefinitely without bail hearings. Since asylum seekers are those who have not been approved for asylum,presumably this ruling impacts them.

Chuck,

I probably speak for a lot of people when I say that you should feel free to send them your paycheck. Just dont ask for any of mine.

Re: “Local leader calls for resistance to Donald Trump's racism

The D&C is reporting that hundreds of demonstrators showed up yesterday. I would think the supporting groups would be very embarrassed that they could only turn out about 15 people per organization. Sounds like even their own members were not interested.

Re: “RCSD grad rate improves despite inequities

You focused on what the reward schools have in common with each other, but not the RCSD. Why not mention what they do not have that RCSD does; almost half of the student body not graduating and one third of the students being chronically absent (10% or more of the school days). Interestingly, an article in the D&C back in 2016 reported that absenteeism for children of immigrants and refugees in the RCSD was below the average. That suggests that the culture and motivation of the parents plays a role. You seem to have missed that.
