Rusche: ‘You have to bend a little’

House Minority Leader John Rusche, D-Lewiston, had this response to the House GOP leaders’ press conference today: “I think it’s disappointing that the impasse is making such dysfunctional government. Who would’ve thought, with the governor and supermajorities (all of the same party), it’s leading to such an impasse?” Rusche said his party controls only 25 percent of the House and 20 percent of the Senate. “The way out of it … you have to bend a little,” he said. “We continue to offer suggestions. … I know that if we were to bring forward a Democratic proposal, it’d immediately be attacked by both sides. It’s just really sad.” He added, “I’d hoped that the long weekend would’ve let people cool off - I don’t know that it has.”
