Deval Patrick’s budget blueprint calls for $34.8 Billion Dollars. This would be a 52% increase over the 2004 budget of $22.86 Billion.
As you ponder these figures, ask yourself:
Are the services you’re paying for 52% better than they were 10 years ago?
As an avid fisherman who has utilized the Fish & Game site only to find that the website hasn’t been updated in over a year(ie. trout stocking schedule not updated), I continue to scratch my head, wondering where this $12 billion in additional spending went.
