I am no fan of Glenn Richardson, but I second Erick’s applause after reading these comments:
“I don’t think the public appreciates us coming up here and not meeting the needs they have,” Perdue said during a news conference in which he vetoed the $700 million budget document.
After word got out that Perdue planned to veto the budget plan Thursday night, the speaker circulated to reporters a letter to the governor containing a veiled threat to try to override the veto.
“If that is your intention, I ask that you veto (the bill) now so that we may exercise rights afforded to us in the Georgia Constitution,” the letter said.
And to the leaders in the Senate…you fought for a damn tax break. You wanted to send some money back to the people of Georgia that work so hard only to have their earnings taken by force…and now you are going back on it? That’s classy. Thanks for nothing.
