We must do something
This is something
Therefore, we must do this.
Which is ultimately why I am distrustful of trillion dollar bills rammed through Congress, even though I think we do need something.

It's easy to forget what happens in some other countries. Seeing what happens in Zimbabwe and Myanmar, it's a relief to me to live in one of the countries that's moved beyond institutionalizing personal or party power above all else.
So, cheers to all the Presidents, Washington through George W Bush, who have stepped aside and let the political process govern who gets power.
We're not a perfect country, but we do get many things right and this is one of them.

According to unofficial results, Democrats captured 32 out of the 62 seats in the Senate. The shift marks the end of an era for New York Republicans, whose control of the Senate had come to depend on a bloc of senators, some in their 70s and 80s, who had put off retirement to help preserve the party's majority. --
So, the Democrats are in full control of the legislative and executive branches in New York State. Personally, I am hoping they legalize gay marriage, something that has previously passed the Assembly and has heretofore stalled in the Senate. Gov. Patterson is willing to sign such a bill. We'd be the first state to postively enact such legislation, instead of having courts make the call. A big, big, deal.
In general, it is now up to them to figure out how to cut the state budget by billions of dollars. I am not sure if they are up to the task or not, but I'll give them the benefit time to see if they can.
