Malcolm not very effective

From NY Daily Balance:

Malcolm Smith and his State Senate Democrats have fled the capital today to begin an 11-day, mid-winter break--after passing just seven bills in the 2009 session’s first six weeks.

Seven bills in six weeks!

You can count ‘em:

Three of the bills relate to Gov. Paterson’s $1.6 billion deficit reduction plan, and are the result of a deal hashed out by the Governor and Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver.

Two bills were sponsored by Republicans.

And two are mere “one-house bills,” meaning they have no sponsor in the Assembly and, thus, are unlikely ever to become law.

Malcolm promises gay marriage and then says he doesn't have the votes. You have the majority, Mr. Senator, put it to the vote and see what happens. let the people speak through their representatives.

Do you really want the state legislature to be "efficient"? The more bills they pass the more money is coming out of your wallet.
