Negotiate? The 2/3 requirement seems to mostly encourage the minority to not give an inch, because they know no budget can be passed if they don't get their demands.

I agree, David. The 2/3rds has been responsible for the stalemate. It doesn't work, so change it.

The result of going to simple majority vote on the budget would be more taxes, more government deficit spending, more unemployment and more business departures to more friendly states. It's that simple. The irony of Hill's position is that he was in the minority for years before he switched parties so he could move up to Sacramento. Now he is toeing the line. State government is a bloated bureaucracy that needs a housecleaning.
