Yeah, I’ve not heard that in the news either. I also don’t hear much about how our Federal tax burden has gone up to fund the “stimulus” package to states so they don’t have to cut spending to living within their means levels.
As Doug says in his latest newsletter, we can balance our budget, but to do so,
“our state must close the walls on liberal spending and commit to a prioritized state government that focuses on the protection of its most vulnerable, public safety and education. This will require restructuring state government and living within our means.”
Isn’t it again refreshing to hear a politician who seems to realize that you don’t get out of debt by borrowing more money?Doug Ericksen, state spending, state budget
