At every turn, Sweeney's been there for the most dangerous and destructive governor the state has ever had. His positions do not represent the majority of his party. He has no business leading his caucus.
Whether or not this bill passes, he needs to be ousted as Senate President.
Oh, and kudos to Adam L for pointing out the millionaire's tax could have been law right now, but Sweeney didn't pass it when Corzine was still governor. At the time, I thought Sweeney was simply cynical: he was willing to hurt the people of this state to make a political point.
Now, I'm more inclined to believe he really didn't want the millionaire's tax at all. George Norcross and his buddies would have had to cut back on fuel for the yachts, and we can't have that, can we?
Lovey, get Steve Sweeney on the phone and tell him to cut my taxes again!
