Assembly GOP Leader: The Weakest Link

Gov. Brian Sandoval has been and continues to be a rock in his commitment to balancing Nevada’s budget without raising taxes and fees. And after getting off to a bit of a rocky start, Senate Republicans have been right there with him. No tax hikes. No way. No how.

Assembly Republican leaders; however, are and continue to be, as usual, as dependable as AT&T cellular service.

That said, in light of Assemblyman Ed Goedhart’s “Ten Bears” letter delivered to Democrat leaders on Thursday, I hear Republican Assembly Minority Leader Pete Goicoechea has decided to play a little hardball himself.

Indeed, I’m told Goicoechea intends to issue a new set of demands on Monday which he’ll insist must be met before voting to raise taxes. Tax My Meat Pete’s new demands include:

• A case of Turtle Wax
• A Justin Bieber CD
• Two packages of Burpee rutabaga seeds
• Dinner for two at a Sonic Drive-in
• A tube sock filled with quarters
• One bottle of Asti Spumante
• A can of Red Man
• Two nights at the Beatty Motel 6
• An autographed copy of Sharron Angle’s new book

I’m telling ya…this guy knows how to drive a hard bargain!
