Republicans are always proposing tax cuts. They never tell us what will have to be cut if the tax cuts are enacted. It's never anything that benefits us, just those "other people".

The Senator knows well that no real discussion will take place in the legislature about what functions should be cut from state government until funds are not available. As for law enforcement, please Mr. Jarvis the Highway Patrol is a minor portion of the State Budget, and local governments provide the vast amount of support for this service not the state. Any cut in both the sales tax and income tax would benefit the people of the state by increasing personal income and making the state more competitive for with other states in the region. One could legitimately argue that such decreases would reduce the need for economic development activities of the state, which are often used to target favored businesses at the expense to all the rest.

Dr. Jarvis is as conservative in his politics as the day is long. And now he calls to task a fellow Republican over a poorly thought-out proposal to shrink state government because those proposing the cutting never explain how they expect essential public functions will be performed under their proposals.

Good to know there are conservatives out there who can see how dysfunctional the GOP dominated legislature has become.

I wholeheartedly agree that Dougall has been lazy in his legislation this year. How can he say that new students would be funded with more budget cuts when the truth is that education has now been severely cut for five years straight? These clowns at the legislature want to know why class sizes aren't shrinking. It doesn't take a math genius to realize that when there are more students coming in and those students are not funded by the legislature that there will not be another teacher hired to teach those new students.
