Rhode Island Gears up for Fight Against Blue

    “These cuts will be painful, but delaying them would be far worse. The basic facts can only be ignored for so long, and it’s good to see that Rhode Island has decided to face reality.”
    Why do you end so many of your articles with such pap? I say, what took them so long? How come they couldn’t see what they were doing from the beginning? Had they not done these stupid things to begin with, they wouldn’t be in the position they are in now. How much better off would the whole state be, if they had recognized reality much sooner? Since it’s the Democrats that have put the state in its present condition, why trust them to fix things properly now? Isn’t it more likely that they will just make more stupid mistakes, which they will then fail to recognize, just like before? Rhode Island needs to fire these idiots, and replace them with Republicans that know that the same thing will happen to them if they don’t do a much better job.

    Ideally, all the cuts and pain should fall on those in the public sector.

    Does that sound harsh? It isn’t.

    Those people NEVER deserved the compensation they received. And none of them ever worked hard — at least in their public sector jobs.

    If this goes through, this means the governor of Wisconsin, who faced a huge battle about this last year, fought this problem before anyone else did.

    Speaking of Rhode Island, see “The Democrat Who took on the Unions” in the Wall Street Journal of March 23.

    So Professor Post-Blue, what’s your take on the Supreme’s ACA hearings?
