I completely forgot that Pietro existed, but it should be fun running against him.


He's been stuck in the same meeting for literally months its not Orion's fault. I think he'd do more with him if he wasnt stuck

Question current IRL makeup of the New York Senate is 39 dems and 22 republicans. Given the Progressive movement and the shit year for the dems that was 2016, what is the in game distribution?

GOP has control of the Senate, GOP person there is the Senate Maj leader. They had control IRL too, the current is after the 18 blowout though they didn't need a caucus trick in RP 16

They're still out of power in the Assembly

I don’t know, but I’m gonna guess the Wyoming state Senate has just 1-2 Democrats, the rest Republicans (Democrats only have 3 out of 30 in 2018), and maybe one Progressive in the state house, with 3-5 Democrats (out of 60).

The Healthcare Conference
Di Pietro pulls out the next proposal.
“The next proposal is a plan to progressively reduce benefits, while protecting low and middle earners. The CRFB puts it this way.
“Currently, initial Social Security benefits, or the benefits that a retiree receives in their first year on Social Security, are determined in a way that allows them to grow with wage growth throughout the economy. This option would institute what is known as "progressive price indexing." Workers who earn below the 60th percentile of earnings would have no change to their benefits. Beyond the 60th percentile, an increasing share of benefits would be adjusted by price inflation; workers making just above the 60th percentile would have their benefits adjusted mostly by wage inflation, while top earners would have their benefits adjusted mostly by price inflation.”
Thoughts? This will save the state millions and help reduce certain cuts.”
