Yeah, I see where you’re coming from, Senator Steinberg.  There’s been way too much of this “no new revenue” nonsense flying around recently.  I can fully appreciate your frustration.  [Okay, okay, let me find the off switch for this sarcasm-whirligig before it throws a lug nut…]

Despicable Senators

The vote is not quite over, but the turncoats have ensured that it’s a mere formality at this point:
