How bad is it? Let me count the ways:
- House Democrats are actually discussing a 10 percent sales tax. Read that here.
- Some moderate Democrats are actually talking mutiny -- that is, opposing the governor's deal with the state employee unions because it doesn't go far enough. Read that here.
- Gov. Malloy is practically begging legislators to approve a 3-month "mini budget," a proposal that pretty much seems dead on arrival. Read that here.
- House Speaker Joe Aresimowicz has pretty much decided to postpone a vote on the budget to July 18.
Now try to have a peaceful holiday weekend.
