Do the knowledge.
- This year officially sucks. The House and Senate rolled out their budget proposals this week, and everybody was hurting. The Senate version was especially hard to stomach, with huge cuts to health care and education. The House version was only slightly better, with a smaller bite into K-12 education funding – “smaller” being relative. Ouch.
- To quote Mr. T, “be somebody, or be somebody’s fool!” And definitely don’t be fooled by the many scams popping up as a result of the bad economy. Be smart with your money, people!
- A house divided… well, you know the rest. Looks like the unprecedented budget year is driving some fissures in the usually united House Democrats. If it’s going to happen, this is the year.
