UPDATE: House GOP Holds The Line, Dems Defeat Stelly Repeal

"We are not going to be able to come to a compromise on the House side on the budget," said Rep. Jim Tucker, R-Terrytown, chairman of the House Republican Caucus.

In votes shortly after, Democrats defeated Republican efforts to repeal all or parts of the Stelly Plan on party-line votes.

We are not surprised, but constantly appalled, at the audacity of Kathleen and her Democrat cronies. These yahoos are hell-bent on running what's left of this state into the ground.
