June 30, 2017 Blink and you Lose, Open Thread

From the Delaware State Senate –Minority Republican Caucus’ Face Book Page from earlier today:
Delaware State Senate – Republican Caucus
5 hrs ·

24 hours ago, legislative Republican leaders delivered a reasonable compromise offer to the Governor and legislative Democrats. This proposal closed the budget hole and included two major concessions from our previous offer. As of now, 24 hours later, we have not heard a response to our proposal directly from the Governor or legislative Democratic leadership. We eagerly await their response, and stand ready to work together to solve this budget problem in a way that makes Delaware government more sustainable and more successful, not just more expensive.

UPDATE:  “It has now been 28 hours since a compromise and proposal were given and still no answer, but Senate Democrats were just seen walking into Michele’s to a private room for dinner – Who is paying for that dinner? And which party isn’t serious about finding a solution for the budget crisis?”

    Since this message did not include what the compromises were, they must be super secret.
    Also hearing some republicans suggest a continuing resolution to fund the state for 30 days while the GA works on the budget. I have yet to get an answer of how that would work considering the state constitutional mandate for a balanced budget on the first day of the new fiscal year.
    While the GA can suspend the rules of the respective houses of the GA, they do not have the authority to suspend the state constitution.
    Also, do we really want this bunch of do nothings to be able to just kick the can down the road for another 30 days? And then what’s to stop them from doing it again, and again, and again? Pretty soon Delaware is just a scaled down version of the federal fiasco.
    No thanks. How about this, do your damned job.

    The GOP will give up everything and the Democrats will drop the Milford-Greenwood bus route.

Got something to say? Go for it!
