Your Friday editorial, “Lost paychecks easy to explain,” is downright silly. The true explanation is even easier. Democrats want to balance the budget by increasing revenues. Republicans want to do it by reducing expenditures. Both points of view are legitimate, of long standing, and well known to all voters. Decency and common sense demand a compromise between the two.

Democrats are willing to compromise, and have tried to do in every way imaginable. Republicans have not. Although a minority in California, Republicans insist it is their way or no way. Don”t single out Democratic Assemblyman Mike Gatto. He and his Democratic colleagues are trying to do their job. It”s the Republicans who are the slackers.
