That the House of Representatives does not understand the concept of immediately considering legislation is not the fault of the Lieutenant Governor.
I believe it would be a fitting tribute to the House of Representatives even daring to consider an impeachment resolution against Casey Cagle being the immediate rejection of all the vetoes by the Rules Committee.
This is outrageous and will all due deference to good friends in the House, that the Speaker would allow this to escalate to this point is a sign that the House needs to be beaten down and put in its proper place.
Suck it up, Rep. Forster.
Now, on that, I will say that the Senate should and must agree to override HB 91. The word on the street is that the Governor’s office hurled several threats against legislators over pushing this override. The fact is, this legislation is solid legislation, the Governor’s own actions prove it is necessary legislation, and as much as the Senate should beat down the House over letting this impeachment B.S. get this far, they should show some fidelity to their branch of government by overriding this particular veto.
