As usual, just like the feds, the cuts start at the bottom or near the bottom where the money is needed.. Why/ why? not start at the top. Cut salaries, cut expenses, cut health cost down to level of the average working man or down to medicare. cut the large retirement salaries. Let them retire and pay social security. Cut the state employees.
