Opening Arguments

Cutting words

Governor to General Assembly: Please cut every state budget you can to save millions and get the state through this recession responsibly.

Senate Repblicans to governor: Nyah, nyah, nyah. We're going to use the federal stimulus money and keep spending and make everybody happy!

Republican Sen. Luke Kenley, acknowledging that the governor is "not fully on board with his own party's budget":

"While he applauds our effort, he wants us to do better," Kenley said.

Oh, really? That's an early contender for "understatement of the year" right there.
