Attacks on Governor and Supporters

Its no wonder why members of the legislature who may otherwise be supportive of Governor Brewer’s plan are not speaking out.

According to some, if you support the Governor’s plan, you must be a nefarious character, seeking nothing more than to line your own pockets – read the ridiculous OUTRAGE! here.  Here is the response which poses a fairly solid reality check.

What stood out for me was this chart regarding the fiscal crisis:

 

 

From what I can tell, the blue line is expenditures and the pink line is revenue.  What it looks like is what everyone fears is going to happen, revenues are going to continue to decline, while the expenditures continue to grow.  Even with the stimulus money, there still appears to be a gap.  Obviously, we need to cut expenditures, but is that going to be enough to make it through these tough times?
