      Hi Alyssa,

      That’s a really good question. Judging from the college debates I watched last weekend, most people are just arguing that the plan would pass after the government opens again or during a special session. This can have interesting implications for the politics disadvantage but mostly it’s been business as usual. What has your experience been?

    Hey there just wanted to give you a brief heads
    up and let you know a few of the images aren’t loading correctly.
    I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve
    tried it in two different browsers and both show the same outcome.

    You have made some really good points. I looked on the internet for more information about the issue and found most people will go along with your views on this website.
