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
