Only $300 Million in Cuts Left to Go...

Lemmeesee, heah, Gomer.

The Governor and his henchmen want to tax the sick and the dead to make up for their, ah, ...irresponsible....budget.

But with only a $300 million gap, let's start with a few other possibilities.

Sell the Governor's Mansion, say, for $1 million.

Stop paying all elected Legislators and reduce their staff(s) to 1 phone-answerer in each office. No more legislative sessions except to enact this provision. Same-o for the Governor. You can call it a "layoff" if you like.

Sell off UW-Parkside to Abbott Labs. THAT should net $250 million or so.

There. That will do it.
