Friday wrap up

Gov. Rell has reaffirmed her pledge not to increase any taxes in the proposed budget that she'll submit to the legislature Wednesday. I met with her for about 90 minutes yesterday. Not including any new tax or tax increase on existing taxes means she will likely follow through on her other promise from the state-of-the-state address earlier this month, that every program, every service in every state agency is on the table in terms of tax cuts.

She's described her budget proposal as "not pretty."

And this legislative session is not going to be very pretty, either. Democrats, special interests and municipal leaders are not going to like her proposal....and there will no doubt be more than a few lines in the sand drawn. Wednesday is going to be a very interesting day.

A little tease for you to ponder over the weekend....

What do nuclear weapons, the Electoral College and spear fishing have in common? The answer (another shameless promotion) is in my Hackett on Politics column in this Sunday's newspaper.

And while I'm at it -- shameless promotion #2 -- every Monday morning I make a guest appearance on the Lee Elci radio show....WXLM-FM, 104.7, between 7:35 and 8 a.m.

If RINO, Rudderless Rell keeps that promice I just might vote her next time.

Ray - It is difficult to read your column when it is not posted on the web site.
