    actually, the fact that they passed no new laws I view as a good thing...having to go into extra innings because they couldn't figure out a budget, not so good...

    77k, that's a bargain. Obama is going too spend up to 100 million on a trip to Africa soon......

    Any other job if you spent that kind of money and produced nothing you would be fired.
    keep this in mind for the next election.

    Appleknocker failure. Major failure to not pass that road hog bill prohibiting camping out in the fast lane. Now you are stuck with a $77K tab and slow bubblegums in the fast lane.

    Are they a full time or part time legislature?

    WA is supposed to be part time, but we need an initiative to limit special sessions to budget issues ONLY, with NO per-diem

    Do your job or go home

    When it comes to legislators (for the most part) paying $77k to have them do nothing is a bargain at three times the price.

    I've actually done some limited lobbying in Olympia for some small non profits. There are some good legislators who work hard and then there are some who work hard to increase government, taxes, etc. It is disheartening they are failing on a budget but kudos for our Senate for holding the line on gun rights and trying NOT to raise new taxes. Of course our bulldozer driving Fusky guv WANTS to raise taxes although as late as October before the election he claimed that wouldn't be good for the state's economy. If I didn't have to work tomorrow I'd be at the temporary bridge dedication tomorrow with a SIGN.:thumbup: or Gadsden flag. Or a thermometer that goes up to 500,000 showing 433,000 CPLs! The only true citizen is an armed citizen.

    I find it impossible to believe that my employer would consider it a "bargain" that after paying me above and beyond my normal wages to do a job he hired me to do and that I couldn't accomplish in the time he allowed me to do it in while I tried unsuccessfully behind his back and beyond all reasonable expectations to take away his constitutional rights was the "best" he could possibly hope for. I think we need to think more along the lines of what is going on in Colorado, these "officials" need to be held accountable.
