Shelly says to wait and see. He says there is no evidence that this is a lasting emergency, that there is no reason to cut spending at this time.

All is well. Sit back. Relax. Don't look your kid in the eye, because sure as hell you are screwing the next generation. But go for it. Justify your raise, your time off, your low co-pays, your free health insurance.

Gov't and school jobs pay.
Especially now that the Dems own it all. Buy your kids some condoms. It's the least you can do.
