State Budget Mess in WSJ

Mark Peters and Kris Maher highlight state budget battles in Pennsylvania and Illinois in their Oct. 7th Wall Street Journal article, "State budget fighters fester."  We do not come out of this looking good.  The article mentions school districts and social service groups taking out loans to function while they wait for the governor and the legislature to get their act together.

It's not like the budget deadline snuck up on everyone; we all knew the budget was due months ago.  This is self-inflicted damage.  There really isn't anything more to say.  It's a complete failure.
