So much for 24 hours to review the tax plan

Rumor has it House Republicans will allow House Democrats to waive the required 24 hour waiting period before votes are taken on the tax increase plan announced at 1:30 today.  This means the 112 page tax bill could be voted on this evening. Regardless of how one plans to vote, it is very disappointing that state representatives not only believe they don't need at least a day to study the details of a massive tax increase, but that their constituents don't deserve this common sense courtesy either.  It is time for constitutional transparency protections for citizens.  In the meantime, happy speed reading for those with nothing better to do today.
