While I do actually agree with some of what these poor clowns are trying to say, I have to admit that I can't keep from literally laughing out loud when I see the defeated, geriatric has beens of the Senate GOP complaining about a lack of "transparency", a "secretive process" and whining about how completely irrelevant they are.
Shortly after it was presented by Senate Majority Leader Malcolm Smith, Senate Republicans held a press conference to complain that the deficit-reduction package was drafted without input from Republican members of the State Senate.
"You've had all the talk about unity and reform," said State Senator John Bonacic, responding to the outline of a proposed bill to bridge this year's $1.6 billion budget deficit. "When you have a secretive process, you lose out."
Senate Minority Leader Dean Skelos, his voice at times rising to a shout, gestured to the members standing behind them - most with hair some shade of silver - and asked who had more expertise in solving the deficit: former long-time committee chairs "or Hiram Monserrate?"
(Remember when Senate Republicans while in the majority refused minority members to submit bills, allowed only one office, a fraction of the office staff and basically keep them in the dark. I'm sure we all feel their pain.) OD
