Job Well Done - as in Fully Cooked

The New Mexico legislature finished their obligatory 30-day budget session this past week, and I can't help but think we would have been better off if they had all stayed home.  Yes, they passed a budget.  One that appears to be some sort of a compromise, but one that too readily depends on continuing sources of revenue that could easily dry up if the economy decides to stall.  The left-wingers couldn't help themselves.

If the idea came from our Republican governor, it almost surely didn't have a chance, except in compromised form.  I think that the local socialists have picked up on the tack taken by federal Democratic legislators, who ask for things so far on the left that any compromise looks better than what they are proposing.  This also gives them the opportunity to chastise conservatives for not wanting to compromise.  In the end, what conservatives are asking for is so close to the middle that we wind up swinging way over to the left.

Please turn right.
