    I like the idea of the woodchipper best.

  • Steele for Governor !!!

    Do you think some of those wealthy people might change their residence to a state that has no income tax? I suppose this is one way to find out.

      They are living here just because of the proposed tax cut?

      • PaulNotBunyan

        I live here for that reason. The tax savings mean I can buy more fuel for my jet.

  • It could work, but you are forgetting the people getting the tax breaks are the Governor’s base supporters.

    I’d rather wood chip 2000 people’s incomes rather than 65,000 people’s needed benefits.   It’s not going to work,  his own party’s representatives say the same.   The feds won’t grant a waiver, and  he is not providing true numbers.

    What’s a global budget?

    That is a way too well thought out plan, balanced w/ mathematically calculated numbers, that actually attempts to solve the problem at hand…our politicians would never go for it.

    We’re excedingly fortunate to have Dr. Steele  to serve  our medical  needs, whilst also attempting to revive a moribund State House with his cutting edge philosophy.  His astute suggestions  could provide  answers to one of those simple, yet  seemingly overwhelming problems that hog tie our governor and Legislature.    But at first, we must resuscitate those entrusted to serve and help people, and unplug the wood chipper ideology.
