Today Is The Day The State Went Up For Sale

Joint Finance foolishly gives Walker the right to sell state assets/our commonly-held resources without competitive, open bidding.

No doubt this will lead to insider abuses, horse-trading and sweet deals, and prison reform as a future priority for the tempted.

Earlier commentary, here.

Ask Chicago how that kind of thing went, when Daley sold the parking meters off for chump change.

And the act of the Legislative GOPs today was precious. "Oh, I'm sure the administration will do a good job in finding buyers, and if it's not a good deal, I'm sure we'll say something about it."

Are these people totally paid off, or just that idiotically naive. Either way, they are UNFIT FOR OFFICE, as they apparently don't understand what the Legislative Branch exists for. Time for some real checks, balances and public servants to take over for these losers - who apparently care more about their contributors' checks and their bank account balances than having any pretense of caring about this state's integrity
