The insurance industry has already spent $11.1 million to defeat R-67, apparently, a new state record. And yet, the race is still too close to call. I think you’ll agree that this suggests that given an even playing field, voters would approve R-67 by a comfortable margin.
So, what to do if those bastards manage to sink R-67 under a tide of dishonest ads and out-of-state cash? Pass it again. Really. If the insurance industry has the resources to spend eight figures defeating R-67, I’d make them spend it every goddamn year.
Perhaps it’s worth $11 million to the insurance industry to keep this statute off the books. But is it worth $22 million? $33 million? $44 million? Wouldn’t it be fun to find out?
Thanks for building such a strong Democratic majority. Now let’s use it.
