What one party government looks (and smells) like

Massachusetts, occasionally called Taxachusetts, also home of the Big Dig - a highway project that cost American taxpayers 16 Billion dollars .. leaks hundreds of thousands of gallons of water a month and its inferior construction caused a roof collapse that killed a commuter.. is all Democrat. Democrat Governor, both US senators Democrat, 10 of 10 US House Reps Democrat 154 of 160 state reps, 36 of 40 state senators. That puts it in the 95% Democrat category.

And it is rife with scandal. A state senator under investigation as a sexual predator, another state senator accused of stuffing bribe money into her uh, clothing. Speaker of the House suspected of illegal dealings with a software company. This list could go on and on. And believe me, it's only the tip of the iceberg. When one party controls the entire governmental workings of a state can you imagine what goes on behind closed doors? Unbridled greed and mismanagement of the citizens taxes is my guess. No checks and balances. It's no surprise that the governor is in panic mode trying to cut costs as a skyrocketing budget (increases 4 times the inflation rate the last two years) threatens to collapse the state economy.

Stay tuned. What happens here in Massachusetts will certainly start happening on a grand scale in a few months.

Wow, predicting that the federal government will soon resemble one-party Messachusettds...well, that is pretty darned depressing. It's like depressing an artery.
