Dontcha just love to see how Virginia Senate Majority Leader Dick Saslaw is so concerned about good governance in Virginia and getting the people’s business done? Right on the heels of stacking committee memberships in Finance and Courts by stripping Republicans of membership, now he’s decided the most important thing he should be doing is”retaliating” against the House of Delegates. I’ve seen High School students display better behavior than this.
From the Virginia Pilot:
“Bills that pass out of here 38 or 40 to nothing can’t even get a full hearing in committee over there,” Saslaw said of the House.
“I have been advocating this for years,” he said of the procedural change, “and now a majority of the people are saying ‘why aren’t we retaliating?’”
Perhaps because the people who elected you actually expected you to do your stinkin’ job. That’s why. I don’t imagine a whole lot of people pulled the lever for members of the Senate of Virginia hoping Senators would focus on engaging in pointless fights with the House of Delegates.
I sure hope we send these children back home and elect some adults to the Senate of Virginia next time. This is ridiculous.
