Tomorrow is Another Day

Greetings All.
This is just a quick post to let all our supporters out there know that Friday's news from the Joint Finance Committee of a 2.5% pay cut recommendation is not the end of the story. The Governor still has to get the votes to pass the budget in the General Assembly.

Starting again tomorrow we will be promoting revenue ideas. The salary cut of 2.5% is worth about $29 million. That is not much in the scheme of Delaware revenue opportunities. In fact, $29 million is such a manageable number that we are about to find out who is truly the friend of public employees, and who is not. The Governor got his vote for a pay cut. However, as William Blake said, "The fox condemns the trap, not himself". Or, as the cowboys would say, "You saddled this bronc, let's see if you can ride it".
