Don't get me wrong, I do not support high taxes. Really, no one WANTS high taxes.
But I feel that it is way, way too simple to "just say cut back". As each state (or company) cuts back, there is a ripple effect.
What I find interesting about this time in history is that traditional "rules" seem to no longer apply. For instance, Florida (no offense) does not have geniuses in the state government.
They have a tax on tourism (rental cars, hotel, etc.) which, in effect, allows other state's residents to pay Florida's way
But with such a severe downturn, everything is turned upside down. Since there will inevitable be a slump in tourism revenues, FLA will run short as well.
And to get this back on a camping theme:
What would you do if your state decided to "cut back" by closing State Parks to offset lower tax revenue?
