From the "Why not Washington?" file.
Andrew Leonard at Salon...
In Connecticut, Democratic control of the governorship and state legislature have pushed through an agenda of higher taxes and extended social welfare safety net benefits that must make President Obama green with envy.I'm kinda green myself. I mean, we have Democratic control of the governorship and the state legislature. Why not Washington?
Oh yeah, we have direct initiatives, too. They don't hamstring their elected representatives that way. If that's not the "why not," it's a "why not."
Time to end the incurably corrupt practice and its perversely anti-democratic outcomes.
