Spending Cuts #umpteen
# umpteen because maybe I bring this up too often?
I've said many times when politicians and the media talk about spending cuts, they usually mean spending isn't being increased as much as some would like. Today's Sacramento Bee makes that point, probably not really meaning to. Bold print is mine for emphasis:
"Compared with the proposal advanced by Democrats, the governor's budget compromise includes $2 billion in additional spending reductions. Public education would get $1.1 billion less than what Democrats propose but would still get a $1.2 billion increase over last year's allocation."
Told you so!
