“Many members of the Assembly spent years campaigning on the reduction or elimination of the supplemental budget.
“Unfortunately, some have allowed the trappings of office and the appeal of pork to change their minds.
“Our members, however, have not changed their minds and believe that this supplemental should not be used as an excuse to propagate wasteful spending.”
The spendthrifts in the House Republican leadership should be taking note. Republicans are not invincible in this state, despite what you may think, and if you cannot get in gear to cut spending and shrink the role of government in the lives individuals then it’s really only a matter of time before you wind up just like your national counterparts.
