Humpty Dumpty Horsford

In Alice in Wonderland, there is this particularly well-known quote from one Humpty Dumpty: “When I use a word, it means just what I choose it to mean — neither more nor less.”

Democrat Senate Majority Leader Steve Horsford must be channeling the Humpster these days considering what he considers to be a “tax” on public employees: “When you ask teachers and nurses and correctional officers to take a 5 percent pay cut,” Horford tells the Las Vegas Review-Journal, “it is a tax on them.”

A spending cut is a tax hike? And I thought the Democrat leader called for “honesty” in budget discussions? Then again, “honesty” can mean whatever Humpty Horford chooses for it to mean, right?
