Dems Cut Check For Themselves As State Workers Twisted In The Wind — Gov. Ed “X” Rendell caved yesterday signing a partial budget allowing 77,000 state workers to get paid, an experience they have not had since July 1.
Also, money was made available for welfare checks.
Checks were cut Tuesday, however, for the Democratic members of the State House using a reserve fund the State Legislature keeps just for budget impasses.
The House and Senate Republicans declined to issue checks until the rest of the state workers were paid, as did the Senate Democrats.
