My appearance yesterday on WICC-600AM with Joe Aguiar starts at 15:30. We shoot the breeze about some ill-conceived proposals I wrote about in my recent CTNewsJunkie op-eds, including rent control and mandatory voting, and what it's like to visit a cannabis store.
At the end, I came up with a novel idea. If the goal of the mandatory voting bill is to increase turnout, then the bill's authors have it all wrong. Instead of fining the nonvoters, pay those who do vote. If you handed out a $100 bill to everyone who votes, you have 100% turnout. Problem solved!ReplyDelete
