Democrats Produce A Budget

On Thursday, state Democratic legislators will be presenting in the legislature their first non-fictional budget since the fiscal year closed weeks ago.

Senate President Pro Tem Donald Williams, said, "We're revising our proposal.''

And Speaker of the House Chris Donovan said, “"We are preparing a budget.''

According to one report, “Donovan said the Democrats will be reducing the amount of the increase in the state income tax, but he declined to reveal the potential rates or the income thresholds that would be affected. The new plan will offer lower taxes and more spending cuts than the most recent Democratic plan.”

Apparently, the two worthies were not asked by reporters why they could not submit their “revised plan” before the fiscal year ended. Why disturb the universe?

Time, says the poet T.S. Elliot, there will be time “for visions and revisions that time will soon erase.
