This insightful quote is from today's Arizona Republic article by Laurie Roberts titled "Let's schedule a fair fight over budget cuts."
"OK, raise your hand if you're happy with Arizona's budget plan, the one put out last week by Republican leaders.
The one that guts one of the nation's most woefully underfunded school systems and debones the universities. The one that eliminates all-day kindergarten and health care for 63,000 kids. The one that slashes services to autistic children and the mentally ill and old people and, oh yeah, abused babies. Applause? Anyone?"
