    NYS to ask CDL drivers if they want to drive a school bus

    I bet they heard from a couple of their neighbors and found out that parents wanted kids bussed, and that taxpayers would foot the bill. I doubt they factored lawsuits into it. These are local school boards, not fortune 500 corporations.

    NYS to ask CDL drivers if they want to drive a school bus

    Not sure that lawsuit would go anywhere. Otherwise anytime any kid got hurt anywhere they would have been "on their way to school". They're not *required* to take the bus now. Or, we could, I don't know, fix the fucking tort system. SCOTUS should eliminate all immunity for government...

    People in AOC’s district are questioned on the amount of taxes the rich pay

    The left's entire argument hinges on the masses not understanding the difference between wealth, money, and income. Sure the rich have almost all the wealth. That's why they're called wealthy. But the middle class has all the income. Actual money isn't all that relevant on a long term basis...
