Nevada Goes Gilda!!!

Gone are the days when Nevada was the poster childPerKin for Going Galt:

CARSON CITY, Nev.—Nevada lawmakers voted Friday to override Gov. Jim Gibbons' veto of a $781 million tax increase plan and key measures that are part of the state budget for the next two fiscal years.

"We had to decide to govern for the good of our constituents and not by platitude," Assembly Speaker Barbara Buckley, D-Las Vegas, said, referring to the conservative Republican governor's repeated statements that he wouldn't support higher taxes.

"It's just the wrong time to raise taxes," said freshman Assemblyman Richard McArthur, R-Las Vegas, siding with the governor during brief debate on the tax plan in the Assembly.

Well there is another state Crushed under the JackBootedIronFisted Red Communist NationalSocialistRevisionists....

Actually, a deficit is a bad thing in normal times, but when the economy is tanking..... as it is still doing, one would hazard to support classical keynsian economics - rather the Red Hordes of Herbert Hoover....

But that way means retreating back into a reality based vision of economics, and not merely the ideologically correct form that has come about in the PostFactual Faze of post-911 cries for help by dearOldDick and friends.
