Holding pattern

It is now 5:15 p.m. The board has been open for almost three hours. So far, we have 43 yeas, 52 nays, and 14 yellow (not voting, yet). The greens are all democrats, the reds are all republicans except one democrat. (ALL the republicans are NO votes) Rep. Green is not here (death in the family).

Bottom line, the dems will have to come up with the votes to get a tax increase.

My husband and I are in stitches right now. I am spreading your blog all over the news paper forums.

Jack you are priceless. Tell the guys in the caucus to stick to their guns. I would love to know who the Republican is who is being offered the Judgeship for vote.

Please impart this info if the guy takes the deal. That way we know who not to back when he comes up for real election.

I think all who vote for these tax increases should be sent applications for employment at McDonalds. LOLOLOLOLOL
