    Let's change the title of this article:

    "Looming spending, and ear marks threaten economic gains".

    How much is Pakistan, Egypt ear marked for?

    What governors like we have in Utah, those economic gains are more of out of control spending government than economic gain. Rather than look at this as losing or economic loss its a blessing in disguise to remove many of the non government essential services. Give the ball to the religious organization and social clubs to give oversight and funding to those they seem to care about.

    Its a gift to take the governor off the hook from advocates and special interest groups and be able to tell them not interested or a tax liability. We can downsize schools, government entitlements, welfare, and infrastructure spending that is compatible and sustainable with the economy and private developer. I would love to have all this stress taken off my back if I was a governor.

    I think justified downsizing and spending would be something to cheer about. The economy and growth would take care of itself if the governor didn't try to take control of a free enterprise economy that is intended to be non government and independent.
