Some of the stimulus funds have only a two year period of help, then dry up. Then what does the state do then? Two options: to replenish funding with scarce state tax money, or drop or curtail the programs being funded. This will only post pone the misery and will not force us to solve our shortfalls.

I appreciate Sen. Emler's comments, however why was it not understood a couple of years ago that "It's smarter to stop spending now than two years from now, but people just can't seem to accept that."

Which "people" is he referring to?

John, I re-read the article, and I think the 'people' he is referring to, are Kansas legislators.
