"The summary letter the Department sent to Congress and released to the public late in the afternoon of March 24 did not fully capture the context, nature, and substance of this office's work and conclusions," Mueller wrote. "There is now public confusion about critical aspects of the results of our investigation."

Barr was merely fulfilling the duties he himself outlined in his employment request (I mean the op-ed he wrote where he said presidents can't obstruck justice.)

Barr's letter was a white wash & a coverup.

Oh wait, I already said that; back on March 24.

Expansion of Medicaid in Kansas (Missouri too) will devastate state budgets. The current system can be expanded for less money. What people don't ever understand is that if the Federal Government would expand Medicaid they can carry a deficit in the budget, states can not. So any deficit would need to come directly out of the pockets of those needing the help and struggling to make tax payments to Kansas as is.
Laura Kelly has already screwed you once by not letting Kansans take tax deductions aligning with Federal tax changes, giving the state millions of our tax dollars. Wake up and see that Denning is correct.
Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me.

Barr's summary dosen't mean shit because you can read the actual report,you dont need it summarized by anyone.

"the state is only allowing a set number of dispensaries to open.According to the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, 192 dispensary facilities will be granted a license." -
