Budget will pass tomorrow


So says Assembly Speaker Mike Sheridan. Apparently the Dems have got the votes and they’re not ashamed to brag about ’em. It’s tough to say whether the budget can be considered a success or not. It is a success in the sense that it makes necessary cuts and it is generally free of completely unrelated provisions, like the asbestos liability BS added at the end of the first version. And its refreshing to see officeholders face the voters and say that they’re raising the oil tax, and yes, we may have to pay for it. It’s unfortunate that J.B. Van Hollen, who is an embarassing jackass, got some good media, but he just may have been right after all about the budget. Oh well.
