I woke up this way too early morning to the awful whine of what I think was a low flying plane over my neighborhood. Having no way to fall back asleep, I went online and found out what many of you know by now: the deal passed the House, but can’t pass the Senate. For some reason, this failed to shock me.
A few minutes ago, this came through the transom (Radio Free Europe…) from Terry Goddard’s office:
The Legislature and Governor have, once again, failed in their most basic constitutional duty – passing a balanced budget. This gridlock just makes Arizona’s economic situation worse and reveals a total lack of leadership at the Capitol.
By the way: anyone figured out yet at what point these guys are violating the constitution by not passing a balanced budget?
