    Dem fools, why these liberals don’t cut costs where needed. Cut those dam pension benefits, cut public payroll, cut double/triple dipping jobs. These bastards (unions and politicians) will take this state down – big time.
    Costs are rising for everyday people, food, gas, services, everything is going up. People are hurting, and these tax and spend liberals can only find ways to increase the tax burden. Salaries – you morons – are not going up, in fact, more layoffs are coming.

    Whoa njyikes…don’t slam the liberals. This isn’t a liberal-conserv issue. It’s a “political animal ” issue. Doesn’t matter who’s in the driver’s seat. The process remains the same. The way politicians get/stay elected not by saving money, but by spending it…..on their constituents.
    Liberals like unions and social programs. Cons like tax breaks for the wealthy and business. Both ideas get you into financial trouble. One drives the over-spending; one affects the abilty to bring in revenue.
    Neither liberals or conservatives will hurt their respective voting blocks……. unless it’s someone else’s voting block.
