The painfull, costly results of slashing state programs

This Sun article demonstrates how the liberals try to justify spending. It uses the disabled as an example of the hardships that cutting spending will include.

If you look at the last 50 years, you will see that our economy is worse than beforre, that people are losing their homes, that our schools are lacking, that we are not any safer, and that more people are living in poverty than ever before. Government is spending more than ever before and we are in worse shape.

50 years ago, one person working could support a family. Now it takes two people working. To look at it another way, it takes 2 jobs instead of one job to support a family. Why? The answer is increased taxes. We pay 50% to 60% of our salary in various federal, state, and local taxes.

Everyone has to cut back. However, we can decide where to cut back and it is not necessary to cut back on the disabled. If we stop illegal immigration with a bill like Arizona's SB 1070, we would save millions, if not billions, of dollars on education and health costs.

We cannot afford more taxes. It would be disastrous for the economy and Nevada.
