Day 1: That’s all folks

State House has also recessed for the day after comments by Speaker Frank Chopp and Minority Leader Richard DeBolt.

They got a chance to lay out the two parties positions. Democrats say the state can’t cut all these good programs like Basic Health, General Assistance to Unemployable Adults, student aid…all of which are in the governor’s “no new taxes” budget.

Republicans say the state can’t raise taxes in a recession.

So, other than being at two diametrically irreconcilable positions, things are just peachy here.

Coming tomorrow: Gov. Chris Gregoire’s “State of the State.”
