    Our tax dollars at work! Is it any wonder they weren't reelected?! No worries, just put more state employees on furlough while they enjoy their 'business trips'!
    Thank you Sen. Rodriguez, Sen Wirth, Rep Varella, Rep Trujillo, Rep Egolf, and (RIP) House Speaker Lujan, for your integrity and commitment to serve the people of New Mexico (all, btw, Santa Fe Democrats)!
