    So Wait a Minute. One Party is going to Hold Up something Unless the other Party does something they Want?

    Wow. What a Unique Idea. Strange that No One has Thought of doing that before?

    ;)

    Yeah, the saddest part is, it's not an argument over whether or not the tax is right or necessary.

    "Right" and "Necessary" are two words that Seldom have an Agreed meaning between Legislators and those they are supposed to be Representing.

    It's a sad commentary on the state of American politics. A tax increase, that will do nothing to further what it is supposedly intended to do, being held up even though neither side opposes it, because there is a disagreement over an unrelated issue.

    Is it any wonder that some of the best sources of "news" information are "comedy" shows?

    Not exactly unrelated, if you go by what the Dems say is their objection.

    Maybe they wouldn't need the tax if they were to get the medicaid money...

    If only that were what the Dems would say, instead. They're drooling for the tax, and we know it.
