Democrats pay little attention to their "leader".

Lt Governor Diane Denish recently wrote; "Before anyone starts debating tax increases, legislators must do everything possible to make sure government is leaner and more efficient."

Well, government is neither leaner, nor more efficient; we still have way too many exempts; the exempts that have been "cut", in reality, have instead been moved into classified positions where they will be even harder to remove.

There is not one fewer double dipper. The Rail Runner is still chugging along, draining $50M a year from the state budget. The "pork" is still being mightily protected.

All the while, Denish's "followers" are debating one tax increase after another.

Either she's not leading, or they're not following.

Exile Richardson from New Mexico for forever.
Now that's a leaner, tighter, clearer New Mexico!
