But top state economic forecaster Arun Raha’s said he’s become pessimistic, that recession risks are up, and his latest line on the economy is that revenues are likely to keep falling.

    CUT/CUT/CUT!!!!!!!!!!!!! and NOW!!!!!!

    CUT 20% accross the board and do it now.

  3. Tell me, just WHAT are you prepared to cut??? My son has seen a drastic cut in his Financial Aid for college. He may not be able to attend because of the cuts in the State Need Grant.
    This, just before a story listing the UW Football Coach as the State’s HIGHEST paid employee. There were drastic cuts in K-12 education, the Basic Health Plan has been scrapped and cuts to highway and bridge inspections were dangerous. We’ve made cuts in the classrooms, Health Care and road maintenance to name a few, but we pay a football coach more than the State’s educators. What gets cut next, genius, daycare, firefighters, or, better yet, YOUR benefits?
    You’re not taxed ENOUGH, idiot!!!

    my brother has three kids in college. All three are working their OWN way through school like he did. He can afford to support all three but that’s not the point. He wants his kids to stand on their own not coddle them like you do.

    You ae a poor example of a father if you didn’t either plan for your kids higher ed or make sure they understood an expectation that they had to pay their way.

    Stop whining and stop depending on government for all your need.
