This is how bad it is going to get

I've always been someone who, broadly speaking, is in favour of (intelligent, responsible) government spending, so it should be no surprise that I agree with the opening part of this post from the always-crucial Slacktivist. But however you feel about Keynesian economics, read the rest of the post and see what Delaware is having to contemplate cutting just to break even, if they don't get any help.

I'm in Canada, and things that are bad in the States are usually not as bad here. But we have a government that believes our government spending is 'bloated' too, and as long as Harper is in power I will remain terrified that this is what we're headed towards.
