Gov. Mitch Daniels of Indiana, in a statement received by e-mail:
“I’m discouraged, dispirited, and disappointed. Discouraged that such a backwards, anti-taxpayer disaster of a bill is this close to passage.
Dispirited at a gross process of vote-buying and special deals that borders on corrupt. And severely disappointed that any of our delegation would vote for such an anti-Indiana measure.
“Let’s nurture the hope that somehow the public will be heard before our nation makes such a terrible mistake.”
