Intransigent Republicans Attack Welfare

Hosted by

The Assembly and Senate were supposed to pass a state budget almost a month ago. Last week the Assembly passed a $145 Billion dollar spending plan and left on vacation. Republicans in the Senate insisted the Assembly version was not balanced, and they refused to go along. The budget requires a two-thirds vote so they can hold it up, even though the Democrats are in the majority.  Today the Republican Senators got specific about $840 Million dollars in cuts including a $300 Million cut from welfare.
