What is your biggest criticism about the state Legislature? “The State Legislature is ineffective. Three examples:
1) Passed the budget 3 weeks late, last in the entire nation.
2) Waited until the end to try to rush through bills instead of managing their time effectively. They are complacent.
3) Not responsive to the immediate needs of Mass. residents. The list of things not accomplished this year far exceeds the list of accomplishments. They did not accomplish bills on critical needs in education, housing and health care.”
