So we can forget about her boneheaded Maui Medical Hospital plans.

Thanks to her smoking ban, bar failure rates tripled and they lost 34% of their patrons on average. She could care less. Can't even have a lousy patio area like MOST States.

Thank you Senator Baker. Having lost several close family members to this terrible disease myself, I am grateful for your efforts, and for your willingness to help others.

Also, I think you're a pretty good chair for the Ways and Means Committee. Mahalo for that too.

Senator Baker is nastyand a bit ineffective. Cannot fault her anti-smoking position though. As a poltiical hack, she is not the worst in office.

You're correct about the nasty part. As for the smoking part if she wants to dislike smoking fine, just don't step on the little guy while you're forcing it, Baker. After all a lot of the owners that had to allow it are non-smokers. I know non-smoking bar employees that allow it so their customers don't walk.

I sympathize with Baker's past medical condition. However, it is no excuse for the substandard and poor legislation that she is so often behind.
