Look at what the Pennsylvania Legislature has been up to in recent years:
* The pay raise fiasco of 2005.What's it going to take to break the camel's back? While one-third of the Legislature has been voted out in the last two election cycles and new leadership has emerged in most of the caucuses, it's still business as usual in Harrisburg.
* The Bonusgate scandal.
* The Vince Fumo trial and conviction.
* A 2009-10 budget that is more than 80 days late.
From an editorial in The Pottstown Mercury:
A year ago, the Legislature adopted an unrealistic budget that set up a deficit which now tops $3 billion. This time around, they took their good ol' time rather than rush the procedure.Read the full editorial at the link below:
But did they do a better job? And will voters remember their ineptitude?
Two questions to be answered in time.
