The Legislature is the problem, Part II
BMG hosted a good debate
yesterday and this morning on the Hack-Progressive Alliance
. The debate could resume this afternoon here
. ... P.S. - A more detailed description of the Hack-Progressive Alliance can be found here
-- Oh, now
they're talking about reforms. But you know it'll be about 'ethics,' i.e. beat up on lobbyists and anyone and everything else except procurement, pensions, patronage, earmarks, vacation and sick time, union coddling and other nuts-and-bolts issues. ... Note Spellman's quote about his January Sal vote. ... Fun quote from BMG link above:
I'm sure Dimasi checked with the ethics office and it was OK to get a $5000 a month kickback from Cognos. And all would have been fine in this state, but the feds had to come in and muck it all up.
