The budget shutdown looms and the Democratic Party shows that even with total 1 party control of the government we can still have battles over a millionaires tax and marijuana laws. Pat brings up the unlikely vote totals in the big Senate Primary race where a relatively unknown challenger made a very real showing against Bob Menendez.

There is always cursing when we talk about the statehouse shenanigans, so parents, please put headphones on around the kids. More to come as this drama plays out!
