How have they handled the $14 billion state debt they created in the last 5 years? They cut income tax 10% in 2006 then had to add the 1 cent sales tax, sell government buildings and cut every government service. The so called balanced budget for 2011 was done at the great expense of education and pushed current and future liability for many expenses like incarceration down to the city and county governments. Further, the "Jobs Bill" a tax cut to corporations and builders, reduces state revenues by $638 Million and will shift further tax burden to local governments by cutting local proper tax receipts.
