Constitution Daily: Tax hike is coming

Excerpted from this post at Constitution Daily

Yesterday I wrote a little about our state's budget problems and how
Chet is going to cut or freeze new spending. The Des Moines Register
actually has a decent article on this today. Culver did take the easy
way out. Rather than slashing programs that don't work or are
inefficient, Culver chose to dance around the edges with cuts in the
publican universities, out-of-state travel, freezing most hiring and
delaying a $37 million new state building. State Auditor Vaudt warned
the legislature and governor last year about the future budget
shortfalls. Of course politicians can't seem to understand a budget.
How are these guys not homeless? They spend and spend our taxpayer
dollars like there is no limit but at home they are fiscally
conservative?
