Mass leftists, what the Hell is "Question One"

34 posts in this topic

It looks to me that the people of the State are voting to decide how many nurses a hospital hires?  Is that what I see, or is it something else?

That's my understanding.

 

Government control of nurse to patient ratios

Nurses union wants mandated ratios of patients to nurses dependent upon level

of care.

i dont think there is enough nurses in the state to jump to that level of care.

They really need that montana health insurance lady to straighten out health costs and then use difference to increase number of nurses.

Shocked that you didn't jump on number three!

 

"Question 3: Transgender Anti-Discrimination

Question 3 proposes to repeal the 2016 state law that banned discrimination against transgender people in places of public accommodation, such as restaurants, malls, and restrooms. Polls have shown that it could be the most competitive measure on the ballot.

The groups backing the initiative say the public accommodations bill is broadly worded and allows individuals to access bathrooms or locker rooms of the opposite sex. Supporters of the 2016 law say there isn’t one incident of assault or invasion of privacy that has occurred as a result of the law."

 

Or number two!

 

Question 2: Commission on Limiting Election Spending and Corporate Rights

Question 2 would create a citizen commission to push a constitutional amendment to overturn the Citizens United v. FEC Supreme Court decision on campaign finance.

Critics say the controversial ruling, which held that the government could not restrict political spending by corporations, increased the undue influence of money in politics and is “a serious and direct threat to our democracy.”

If passed, Massachusetts’s top elected officials would appoint members to the 15-person commission, which would go on to research the current campaign finance system and recommend an amendment to overturn Citizens United.

 

Not a resident, so I don't have a say.   But it seems like the patient to nurse limits (not nurse hires) is a proposed regulation that  the voters will have to decide.

And who decided this was the business of the voters?

"The Massachusetts Nurses Association, a union that represents about 20 percent of nurses in the state, is the main force behind this ballot initiative"  Easy enough to look up.

Again, why is this any business of ANYONE but the principles/owners/administrators of the hospital?

I guess the state has ballot measures.   Are you a resident of MA?  Why do you "care" so much?

Apparently, IT IS.  Why don't YOU get that?

 

"Citizens of Massachusetts may initiate legislation through the process of indirect initiative. In Massachusetts, successful petitions are first presented to the Massachusetts General Court. Once presented to the legislature, proposals for amendments and proposals for statutes face distinct requirements. Amendments must be approved by one-fourth of the legislators in joint session before proceeding to the ballot. Statutes may be adopted by the legislature by a majority vote in both houses. If a statute proposed by a valid initiative petition is not adopted, proponents must collect another, smaller round of signatures to place the statute on the ballot."

 

Again:   ARE YOU A RESIDENT?  If so, initiate a indirect initiative to have it removed.   If not, just get behind what "the people" are doing in their "sovereign state", ya know, 10th Amendment stuff.

Was it the business of the people to pass Prop 8 in California?

Mass is heavily corrupt with lots of union deals. Roads cost 8x per mile cost of any other roads to maintain and the roads are worst roads you can imagine. Plus, when you have to go anywhere, roads/tunnels/bridges are closed for maint with nothing being done.

they simply want health care to be the same.
