No shame for House Dems

House Dems have given surpassed OUTRAGE in their move to pay themselves immediately after this phony budget passage, and before state workers.

They have no shame in upholding the tradition of the legislature, as their spokesman calls it.

Reps. Conklin and Hanna are part of this group, and I'd like either of them to write to us and tell why they should be paid before state workers. I'll be glad to publish their correspondence.

Now, for the other side, the top Senate Republican said negotiators could have a real budget in 10 days if a tax increase is off the table. Well it is, and time is passing.  It's time for the negotiators to negotiate and stop holding the rest of the state hostage.
