The wheels of De-mock-racy – or the conveyor belts inside the sausage factory – are beginning to warm up. Senate Majority Leader Jake Corman and the Republican Party dropped a 400 page pension reform bill at 4:30 PM on the Friday before Mother’s Day. The bill is on course to be Fast-Tracked through the Senate with a Finance Committee vote expected at the beginning of session on Monday and a possible floor vote as early as Wednesday.
To say the least, let the budget games begin.
