Gov. talks about Spencer, a child with autism, and a face for who is actually being hurt by cuts. The thing I have the hardest time with is that the Gov. brings up Spencer as an example of what is hard, but also is cutting the H&W budget. Do we care? Is it showing that we care when we cut the H&W budget for the least amongst us? This is a tight budget year, but I just can't see the compassion in cutting budgets for people that actually need us to lead.

I feel their pain but the budget issue is a simple math problem. You could cut every agency in state government with the exception of education and social service programs and still not have enough money to spare Ed and H&W without raising taxes.
