State Budget Historical Perspective

Binversie, speaking of the not-long-ago.

...the budget grew until becoming the $47 billion monster passed last year

That was the 2001 State budget total.

Enter Three-Card-Monte Doyle, and... the four budgets he’s submitted to the legislature, Jim Doyle has increased state spending an amazing $17.5 Billion, or 37.2% [to $64.5Bn this go-round].

Sure looks like 'restraint and prudence' to me. /sarcasm
