the state has been hobbled by earlier budget fixes that can't be repeated and make it difficult for it to climb out of its fiscal hole.You can't keep shifting line items around without paying the piper. The no new tax pledge could cost the Governor more then his re-election if he maintains his stubbornness on the issue. Of course, he has his own ideas how to raise revenues. But of course, they are user fees, not taxes.
"Hey, Tim! Look up taxes in the dictionary!"
