This State would be in the Red no matter who was Govenor or in the legislature. Revenues have been lost from the license tabs and from sales tax. From what I heard Rep. Campbell say those amounted to almost $6 billion and the State would need to cut 20% across the board from the budget to balance. So the budget is not really a Dem and Rep issue but more people wanting to be given everything and wanting more. We want the services but don't want to pay for it... enough taxes already. I'm really concerned about paying my property taxes this month.

That is why I prefaced my statement: " ... this is more than ..." This state is so far in the red because of an irresponsible legislature and governor, they don't need to be looking for more ways to slow our economy down and spend us deeper into debt!
Anyone with common sense knows you must live within your means or you go bankrupt and if this legislature isn't reined in, we will leave our children a tremendous amount of debt!
When you have a legislature and governor figuring out ways to spend what they do not have and a federal government on a spending orgy, we, the People, must say enough is enough! If we do not, we are as guilty as they are!
"Green" jobs will come in time but they are not available yet and to wish it were so will not make it true! Accepting money that expands government and does nothing for the state's economy now, is irresponsible and not why we sent these people to Olympia!
That is why there will be protests in Olympia in March; I believe one of the dates is the 17th, but don't quote me on that ~ And there will be protests and marches throughout the state on April 15th. The People are rapidly becoming fed up with what's going on in Olympia and throughout the country!

I think you are talking about issues much larger than this bill is meant to address. Where in this bill did you get information that it will impose national health care on anyone? [^o)]
