The liberals are frantic trying to come up with new ways to scare people about the cliff. They talk about hospitals being closed, school programs losing funding and even courthouses that may have to close so criminals will be running loose on the streets.

If you can't manage your budget yourself then the cliff will do it for you. I hope we break the sound barrier going off the cliff and if they have to close the courthouse then so be it. A hint for your local leaders - the next budget don't spend more money than you have coming in stupid! Life is hard when you can spend your money plus someone else's huh? Try doing what normal people do and live within your budget. If you need to close something then do it - the rest of us are tired of paying thousands more in taxes because you cannot seem to do simple math.

A tiny taste of the real world in government candyland is just horrible isn't it?
