Should we believe David Williams now?

In February, Senate President David Williams said that if Republicans voted against tax increases, Democrats would cut spending in politically sensitive areas and blame Republicans for it.

Last week, he spoke to the Louisville Courier Journal:
"Williams told reporters after the briefing that he didn't think higher taxes would be part of the solution."

""I don't see any movement out in the public or in their elected officials that would indicate that there would be any call for any additional tax increases," he said."

So, what has changed? Anything? Williams made similar comments the month before his big flip-flop in the 2009 General Assembly.

Williams has encouraged speculation that he could be a candidate for U.S. Senate in 2010 and/or Governor in 2011. Williams is scheduled to speak Saturday at the state GOP Lincoln dinner.
