Hu­mored by Keat­ing

The Oklahoman (Sunday) - - OPINION -

I al­most find it funny that former Gov. Frank Keat­ing is cas­ti­gat­ing fel­low politi­cians for fail­ing to do their duty. He’s the same guy who in 2001 came into my liv­ing room via tele­vi­sion, looked me in the eye and promised that if I voted for right to work

I’d get a $30-a-week pay in­crease. I haven’t seen a dime from his prom­ise. It’s not sur­pris­ing that Keat­ing is sid­ing with his former bosses and their ef­forts to prompt their cur­rent un­der­lings at NE 23 and Lin­coln to get things done. They want to tax those with the least, make a to­ken ef­fort to tax them­selves and sweep this whole mess un­der the rug. Dis­rup­tion is bad for busi­ness. Throw the lit­tle peo­ple a bone and keep the busi­ness prof­its rolling.
