Higher taxes and more spending are the wrong answers to waste and fraud in state government.
There is plenty of revenue in state government right now, if only legislators would get serious about stopping fraud, cutting waste, and focusing on the highest priorities first.
In other words: Fix it first, then fund it. We’ve had it with promises that they’ll fix it tomorrow, that they’ll get around to reforms next session, that they need another committee or commission or study. Enough is enough!
It is time to get serious about fixing state government. Please oppose any increases in taxes or spending until serious reforms and considered and enacted to fix broken agencies, cut crony handouts, and shift spending to the highest priorities rather than pet projects.
