re: We can cut our way out of our budget problems without raising taxes - Asgard Device
[quote]Lower state spending to the U.S. average[/quote] That's a pretty dumb analysis. You failed to account for the massive amount of Federal funding the state gets that other states don't. ...

re: Why are we only allowed to cut health care and education? - Asgard Device
OP's question is based on misinformation. Those limitations only apply to the governor. He can't unilaterally undo what the legislature appropriates. He can do healthcare and higher education and up to 5% of general stat ded programs. Legislature can cut anything they want that isn't constit...

re: John Kennedy laying down the truth - Asgard Device
He talks about obviously bull shite and wasteful contracts at the department of economic development but ultimately nobody will care until a democrat does it. In that regard it's a good thing he got elected. Maybe now people will make a stand against crony capitalism. Who am I kidding? It'll just b...

re: 30 days in...who has the guts - Asgard Device
He's doing what any reasonable person would do when looking at the revenue side of the equation. I am surprised he is favoring taxes that hurt the poor via sales taxes and isn't targeting the rich with a progressive income tax. I think JBE is the fall guy we need to get over this hump. ...

re: What are some realistic solutions to the LA budget issue? - Asgard Device
Jindal got DOTD to start making our roads thinner in order to save some money. Maybe we can just start using dirt and gravel? If you lay off thousands of employees you won't save any money in the current fiscal year because they will get to empty out some of their leave and there will be a big h...

[quote] I know of 3 such instances of "staff" in certain departments that were political favors.

[quote]Cruz will do whatever his corporate over lords tell him to do which will be in keep it illegal.[/quote] Probably. It's not like Obama hasn't done as much as he could in that department. He stays out of states that legalized it but still enforces it elsewhere. Probably lobbyists involved. ...

What do you think Trump or Cruz would do about drug enforcement? - Asgard Device
Rubio is on record as saying he was against legalizing recreational marijuana and even said there was no safe way to do it. Hillary and Trump have both kinda flopped on recreational MJ but both seem solidly for medical MJ. Cruz said he is against the legalization of MJ but said "its a state's right"...
