15. Have you ever worked on policy development with a large group of
people? I have. It isn't as cut and dried or as easy as you think. Congress did their thing. Now it is time to it out. That is our process, like it or not. Sometimes I can be really idealistic in my expectations but I'm alway brought back by what I know to be true of the process. Now if you don't like the outcome now, change the people who are representing you in Congress because, like it or not, they have the constituional responsibility for crafting the law.
