‘Enough is enough’ … or not

State Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg, D-Sacramento, addressed reporters late last night at the State Capitol:

A short while later, the Senate Republican Caucus ousted Dave Cogdill, R-Modesto, as its leader because he’d agreed to some tax increases as part of the budget solution. The new leader is Dennis Hollingsworth, R-Murrieta, who has vowed not to support any tax increases at all.

In other words: Back to square one.
