Statements decrying the recent nipple law are accurate. It was indeed a waste of our legislators’ time. But when they actually produce substantive legislation, the result is appalling. One longs for more nipple bills when they reduce maximum unemployment benefits to $350 a week and refuse Washington’s help in expanding Medicaid. Add this to the governor’s granting significant raises to Cabinet members already making over $100,000, and we get an idea what Republican rule of our state means.
