Robey vetoes GOP cut in tax caps

Was their every any doubt?

When Mr. Robey says he will raise taxes, he raises taxes. When Mr. Robey says we will veto a tax cut, he vetos the tax cut.

It will be interesting to see how Mr. Robey's proposed tax cut will fair in the County Council. I expect it will pass, but I also expect a great deal of amendments and changes to his budget as well.

Will Mr. Robey engage Mr. Merdon in dialogue prior to submitting his budget? I have my doubts. I think if Mr. Robey is anything he is consistent and he will not engage the Council President in budget discussions prior to submitting his 2007 budget proposal. I think Mr. Robey is used to having it his way. Makes me wonder how he would fair as a State Senator – I doubt he has the tempermant.
