The way to balance budgets is to:1. Freeze the sucker2. Cut
it across the board to meet revenues (taxes).I thought states are
compelled to balance their budgets. What is so hard to understand about
that?Cut spending across the board. I don't care what state
agencies submit to the governor as the next year.Restrict bonding
measures. Bonding is a backhanded way is increasing spending, and it adds to
interest and increases in taxes. State and local taxing authorities are using
bonding to fund grandiose projects. Have any of you people seen the taj majals
being built by school districts and municipalities. Budgets for equipment for
fire departments, school districts and state, county, and city governments need
to monitored and become transparent; as in being published in the newspapers,
shown and talked about on radio and TV. The general public has no idea what is
going on with government expenditures. Costs for schools are going up and up.
Costs for education at all levels is going up astronomically, and is never
talked about. All the newsmedia talke about is fuel, airline tickets/baggage,
food and the like. I am appalled by what government gets by with.
