The legislature and the House specifically is doing a big-time power grab. Agreed. And I find it short-sighted, wrong and disgusting.
The Forum Editorial was NOT spot-on. Referring to ONLY a 15.4% increase in spending as “draconian cuts” is dishonest. Argue that more funding is proper (if you want), but stop calling an increase a “cut”.
During the last few years, we have heard how it is necessary to increase government spending (especially at the federal level) because the economy is down and we need to get it going again. In ND, we have a strong economy so we hear we need to ramp up spending to “invest in our future”. My question: Is there ever an economic situation that DOESN’T call for significant increases in the size of government?
