We must come together, set priorities, and not shirk from the hard work required. The only way to solve the budget is to start from scratch. We need to:
- Fund the constitutionally defined responsibilities of the government
- Fund the needs of our state in priority
- Fund core education equally, by funding each student the same across the state. (Any special or additional programs should be funded on their merits, separately and with a fixed expiration date.)
- Prioritize all additional programs and stop spending when the money runs out
