    For someone who criticized the legislator before him for decisions she made during the last deficit he is sure short of real ideas on how to address this deficit. Other than raise taxes.

    He couldn’t even bring himself to break with his party leaders on the first day of session and vote for decreasing legislators perdiems to 2006 levels.
