For the last several weeks, we have been reading about how Republican state senators are refusing to vote for the state budget. Several years ago, we voted a new governor into office. Why? Because the Democrats' tax-and-spend policies had nearly bankrupted the state. Now that the Republicans are trying to balance the budget, the same Democrats, who seem to have short memories, want to spend more money than is coming in. Lord save us from these fiscally irresponsible liberals.
I commend the Republicans who are dedicated to having a balanced budget and are willing to fight for it. Congratulations to Sens. Jeff Denham and Dave Cogdill for their resolve.
