"House Republicans said Wednesday they are concerned of a "looming fiscal crisis" in state and local finances but ruled out any federal bailouts for states. "// - What can they do? They don't have any money to spend either. Eventually this entire house of cards is going to fall....then what?
This is a funny tack by the Democrats. Republicans, by and large, ran on a limited government platform, and the voters overwhelmingly told them to go for it. Now the Dems are trying to say that they're wrong for doing what they said they'd do?
"State Sen. Rodney Ellis, D-Houston, said he wasn't ready to release how he would fix the problem but said he plans on making waves during the budget debate."// - Is anyone REALLY surprised by this? If they admit their real plan (tax everyone but us) they'll be laughed out of the State.
