A taxing problem

This article in the Las Vegas Sun is about how Nevada has to raise taxes or
the 'new economy' will bypass Nevada and flourish in states that take education and other necessary services seriously

It is always about raising taxes and never about cutting spending.

The article also states,
That’s not a secret. For years, governors and state lawmakers have clearly seen the problem — education and vital government services don’t have the necessary funding and, as a result, don’t perform well compared with other states. The state’s antiquated tax system needs to be overhauled and made more equitable. Yet little has changed.

While I don't agree that the problem is lack of funding, I do agree that
governors and state lawmakers have clearly seen the problem.

The problem is that they didn't do anything about the reckless and wasteful spending.
