The Albuquerque Journal said this morning that the State Congressional delegation was divided on the deficit fix. Divided is a creative word here. Since the score is really 4 members for raising taxes on the wealthy and one against it. But that is the Journal's peculiar way of describing a land slide. Congressman Steve Pearce, who represents Portales Peanut Farmers, says no to taxing the rich.
Governor Martinez got what she wanted in extending the casino lease at New Mexico Expo. Golly, it is like she morphed into a pay to play politico in awarding her donors with a quick and fat contract to run a gambling operation. How will she explain this? I think this is one even the morning newspaper will have to question.
