Republicans, Democrats Join Together To Support Corporate Welfare
I’m sure the sleazy-bastards at Hicks Partners are glad that Bob Taft’s corporate welfare proposal is not dead:
Strickland, meanwhile, said in response to a question at the forum that he is “fully prepared” to call the legislature back into session before an Aug. 5 deadline to put an issue on the Nov. 3 ballot to renew the Third Frontier technology program.
House Speaker Armond Budish, D-Beachwood, has said he is willing to bring the Ohio House back to put the Third Frontier issue on the ballot if an agreement can be reached. But Senate President Bill M. Harris, R-Ashland, has concerns.
Specifically, Harris said this week that although he supports the renewal, he is worried there isn’t enough time left to prepare the issue for the ballot and mount an effective campaign to pass it.
“My gut feeling at this point that it will take more than the time that we have available for this election coming up this fall,” Harris said. “We were successful and have been successful with Third Frontier (because) we’ve done it right.”
Seriously, why do Republicans put up with Bill Harris? He was the lead Senate Republican traitor on Strickland’s budget, and is too tied to special corporate interests to make a spirited defense of this socialistic program. (Even though, sadly, Taft’s program now looks like chump change and a conservative proposal compared to Federal “stimulus” spending.)
