The Democrats have won supermajorities in both houses here. Two-thirds of each one.
Things they can now do:
- Increase taxes without asking voters or Republicans
- Put a constitutional amendment on the ballot
- Override the governor’s vetoes
- Suspend the minimum funding guarantee for K-12 schools
We have apparently already voted ourselves a number of new taxes across the state. And now this.
There will be no Democratic voices raised in praise of a “two party system” or concerned about “balance of power.” None.
“Debate” is no longer a problem for the Democrats in this state.
Let the Great Leap Forward begin.
