    How bad will the new GOP governors in Wisconsin, Ohio, Michigan, and Florida screw up their states?

    Cutting education to help your state's budget is acceptable until the very next thing that occurs is a tax break handed to big businesses that are for more than the savings cut from education.  I just don't get why multi-million dollar companies need more money when teachers are barely getting by and students are learning in schools that are falling apart.

    Afraid that is something I can not answer, but if its anything like my local MPs, then they will ensure the exspenses are looked after!!!

    Because multimillion dollar companies are the ones who make the jobs, that pay people so they can buy things, so the economy picks up. 

    No, cutting education budget is not the answer--how about cutting all of the politicians salaries?

    How can they possibly screw up a group of states which are teetering on the edge of bankruptcy and suffering the effects of job lossess due to industry being driven out by high labor costs?  If the status quo continues in those states, the fate is sealed.  These are individuals who recognize the problems, care enough to attempt a solution, and hope that the outcome will benefit the welfare of the state and the people in the future.  Those states did not get where they are now by accident or by being led previously by a genius.  They got there because too many elected officials were willing to make too many committments which were financially unattainable by the citizens of the state.  These states have lost a significant portion of their commercial tax base and the solution to the problem is not one of simply increasing the taxes on those who live there...sooner or later enough is enough.  If job growth and economic growth is to exist in these states in the future, some drastic changes must come about to bring things into balance once again.  Otherwise, a significant portion of the inhabitants of those states are going to call it quits and move to some other state which does have its head in the right place.
