There are many opinions on what we need to do. However, I think there is consensus we need to fix the constant uncertainty in the budget. As Majority Leader I am of course entitled to my own opinion. But I also have the responsibility of attempting to lead the caucus to a solution that can be supported by at least 48 members in the case of a revenue raising measure or 51 members in the case of an efficiency measure or tax exemption repeal.
I believe every member of the Republican Caucus (the one I work most closely with) is operating in good faith attempting to find a solution. I hope when the consensus is reached there can be both wide support in the caucus and from the other side of the isle. But that won’t happen without continued hard work and compromise.
