My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


What's Wrong With This Picture

Read the following from today's Rocky Mountain News:

The result: Lawmakers estimate they'll refund $3.1 billion to Colorado taxpayers through 2010. At the same time, they project they'll need to cut $800 million in programs - or save an equivalent amount in efficiencies - to balance the budget. . .

Gov. Bill Owens and two-thirds of legislators want to balance the budget long term by asking voters to give up five years of refunds and let the state spend the money instead. Legislative leaders promised Wednesday they'll approve a ballot plan by week's end.

Um.. . hey, guys. Where's the other $2.3 billion going? Why isn't this solution . . . oh, never mind.
