New Jersey’s politicians have been saying they are cutting government spending to the bone, just like we hear in Kentucky.
Even so, no one should be surprised to learn that those same politicians overshot the mark last year by $2.2 billion and have merely thrown it on the taxpayers’ credit card. What is interesting is that this fact made the newspaper up there.
Meanwhile in Kentucky, we are adding in more than $1.5 billion to our debt load over the next two years and you don’t hear a peep from our media watchdogs.
For a little context, New Jersey has more than double the population of Kentucky.
