Steinberg: 2/3 Is the Cause of The Entire Problem

July 7, 2009

via Calitics, state Senator Darrel Steinberg:

The 2/3 requirement that we have in this state. I know it’s a tired old saw. But when you really think about, that is the cause of so much of the dysfunction in the legislature. you have a minority party that obviously worked in tandem with the governor that cost the state 6-7 billion dollars tonight for no good reason. To somehow improve your negotiating position. It is without question the most irresponsible act that I have seen in my 15 years of public service…I hope that the significance will truly capture enough attention that the people will decide it is time to change the system that allows the minority to essentially rule the day. That’s not just the Senate Republicans, it was the Governor too, who was apparently out to prove a point. And he proved a point.

Isn’t this just obvious?

BTW, town halls are taking place all over to build support for a constitutional convention.  Like this one in Santa Monica next week (7/17).
