Krusty Konservative: Culver suggests 6.5 percent budget cuts

Excerpted from this post at Krusty Konservative

Last night Governor Chet Culver announced that his budget proposal
will cut most state programs by 6.5%. The governor said that he wanted
to spare public safety, workforce development, human services,
disaster relief, the teacher quality program, and early childhood
education from a full 6.5% cut. Why? Just because a program is popular
or worthy of funding doesn't mean there is no wasteful spending
occurring in it. For example, I've been in support of immediate flood
relief; you know a package that funds the rebuilding and recovery
process; not sneaks things like forced unionization language in the
bill. The Culver and the Democrats have been good at making promises,
but they have also been good at dragging their feet. People are still
waiting.
