I’m not crying but I’m combining this mentally with other fed heavy votes that would be fine if states could continue with the ability to fine tune for specific needs but with that ability stripped from them, I suspect their roles will become administrative arms of the fed, in the name of easing regulations.

Told her to ignore the deadline paperwork and “we’ll call you when we’re ready”. Maybe it’ll magically work out fine. But that eo changed things FAST and the scammers are rushing in and just getting warmed up. That’s not my only example but its the most recent.
