BS In West Virginia?

BS In West Virginia?

Physician assistants are urging Gov. Jim Justice to withdraw his veto of legislation that would revise their scope of practice in West Virginia and authorize they work in collaboration rather than under supervision of a doctor.

"We don't have a nothing burger today and we don't have a mayonnaise sandwich today".

Jim Justice brought several props, including a pile of cow dung, to a budget announcement. Should a new round of budget negotiations prove necessary, let us hope it is conducted in a more mature manner. "We all should take ownership for this, but what we have is nothing more than a bunch of political bull-you-know-what", he said, showing platters with a burger, a sandwich and, finally, a pile of bull-you-know-what.

Justice then proclaimed he'd veto the budget, which WV Metro News reported didn't include his tax increases on sales, businesses and the rich.

Justice posted a video of his political sideshow on Twitter, complete with a "poop" emoji. The bull feces was atop what appeared to be the budget.

Justice explained the antics used by the capitol were immature, using the whiteboard laying out budget cuts.

Lawmakers will have to return to try to resolve the disagreement, needing two-thirds support to override Justice's veto.

"He just kept putting out proposals throughout the session", Boettner said. "If we're this way, you know what we'll get done?" They sent us here to do a job.

Only this time the poop-fueled argument was for more government ...

Tim Armstead, West Virginia's Republican House speaker, slammed Justice's publicity stunt as a low-rent display.

'There is significant opposition to tax increases in the House of Delegates, ' he insisted.
