I am not on the inside of any of this. on the surface it looks like the same kind of issue that has been plaguing the US for recent years- extreme partisanship. The governor wants to raise taxes on the wealthy (which means himself since he is a multi-millionaire). While the Republicans don't. They want to cut services. Sure that sounds like an oversimplification, but I think it is the crux of the matter. It is a seemingly unconquerable chasm of ideology.
In the end, it will be the people who lose- state workers, state residents, the state's reputation. I am very aware we are in a very difficult position economically and politically right now. But democracy is about working together and finding compromise. It appears to me as if some people aren't willing to do that.
