Re-post stories???

So I'm wondering if I should just repost stories from the beginning of the month.  Although it was a closer call last night then on the 30th, the House got their business done, approving the budget, special election and of the other tax cuts but the Senate was held up by a member or two.  It sounds like Gorman is the final dissenting no vote with Gould being a staunch no vote from the get go (Not Ron Gould by the way has had some zingers). 

It really is amazing that more cuts than tax revenue isn't enough for the ideologues.  With the cuts being a sure thing and the temporary tax increase, in their eyes, a sure to fail proposal; what is to gain here?  

So it looks like next Tuesday is the day.  The Dems meanwhile have their talking points and are sticking to them.  Even Terry Goddard has chimed in after being silent through the entire process.  While I don't blame them for saying the things they are, their proposals have been unrealistic and too far to the left to be considered viable options.  Some would say true leaders (even when in minority positions) come up with good ideas that actually have a chance to be implemented.  Every proposal I saw from them was just too far out in left field to even be considered.

You use the word ideologue like it was a bad thing.

definition - ideologist: an advocate of some ideology

Too far left? That sounds like you may not be completely in the tank for the Democrats. This gives me further motivation to continue reading this blog. There are far too few news and commentary sources that know that there is more than one way to look at a given political event.
