Count me among those who have made fun of government workers over the years. But count me also as very sympathetic to the plight of those state workers who have had their paydays postponed because of the current budget impasse, as detailed in this morning's story "State Workers Rally for Budget Passage."
If state workers are not being paid, then state lawmakers should not be paid either. As the bar girls used to say in old Saigon, "no money, no honey."
The situation is intolerable. How are people expected to pay their bills?
Enough already, politicians. Pass the darn budget, which is the job you are being paid to do.
