'March to zero' likely to produce future budget shortfalls, GOP lawmakers concede

Davey and Chuck won't write us that $400,000,000 check because they have to use it with another $500,000,000 (I like to use all the zeros, it has more impact than saying $500 million) to buy the Presidency and to make sure Congress stays under their control. If we think it's bad now just wait until they buy the Presidency for Scottie.

Kansas lawmakers move to change bargaining, civil service

There was a reason Teddy Roosevelt and others fought to put the civil service system in place. Patronage is the worst form of bureaucracy. The Republics are out to destroy everything that built the strong middle class that developed in the middle part of the last century. Their plan is to undo the New Deal and destroy Labor Unions, two cornerstones of the middle class.

Lawmaker suggests school finance case could affect judicial budget
