Today’s Fun Video: Senate majority puts budget stance to music

OLYMPIA -- While it may seem like not much is getting done on the budget in the Legislature, negotiators have been working regularly to come to some kind of deal that will allow them to get out of town.

And those not negotiating? Well, some of them are keeping busy, too.

Sen. Joe Fain, R-Auburn, is the floor leader, which means he has the job of moving things along for the Majority Coalition Caucus, even if that's just moving to accept yesterday's journal and adjourn until the next day. He used some of his free time to put together a music video to drum up support for the caucus's stand on a budget without new taxes. 

It could use a bit more video to go with the music. But the tune is at least catchy
