Whistling Past the Deficit
Unfortunately, the Democrats running the State Senate seem to think things are not as bad as the governor makes out, and have advanced a plan that is politically palatable but also ludicrous. They would drain rainy-day funds and any other untapped pool of savings to pay the bills until March of next year.
That’s like cleaning out your 401(k) to pay the rent.
It is time for the Legislature to face facts.
