Florida Legislature: Lawmakers say budget may not be done by se...

Full story: South Florida Sun-Sentinel

Florida lawmakers' budget stalemate ground into the final week of the 60-day session Friday, with Senate President Jeff Atwater conceding it would be "very difficult" to bridge big-ticket decisions on higher cigarette taxes, Seminole gambling and spending cuts on time.

Oh what's the big deal, after all a Special Session will only cost about 2 child abuse investigators' salary a day!

But as long as CSX gets our $4 BILLION dollars and the members get their PORK and FREE HEALTH INSURANCE, FREE DENTAL INSURANCE and really great RETIREMENT, it must be worth it - NOT!

""We need to get serious about our jobs and finish a budget," said Sen. Ted Deutch, D-Boca Raton. "The notion that we're going to have to spend money to fly back to Tallahassee, to stay up here, all on the backs of the taxpayers. I can understand why your constiuents would be disgusted."
Hey stupid, get your arse back up to Tallahassee, get over your non control of the Legislature, quit your petty belly aching, and go do your job. NOW!

While as a state employee who hasn't gotten any raise in 3 years, and is having to hear this house and senate say a 4 or 5 percent cut in State workers' pay should be a solution; I think these legislators should have to pay out of their own pockets for the extra travel and expense of extending the session. After all, they've had time in session and wasted it with partisan bickering

He's not the problem.

When the Speaker (r) and the Senate President (r) decide to agree, it will be over.

Did I mention that they are both Republicans?
