At the end of the Special Session to balance the state budget, Sen. Bob Coffin took 25 minutes to criticize the deal and those who made it. Where others saw a balanced budget, Coffin said there was not enough revenue. And he warned his fellow lawmakers not to return home and congratulate themselves. On the contrary, he said the legislature lacked the nerve to raise enough tax revenue. State Sen. Bob Coffin joins us to explain why the special session was a very disappointing six days.

Guest:
State Sen. Bob Coffin, (D-Las Vegas)
