We don't have much time left. Despite his own admission that his budget is way too extreme, "Arnold Sandogibbons" continues to deny reality and push Nevada to the edge of annihilation. Nevada needs more investment in public infrastructure, not less, to survive and ultimately thrive. The Sandogibbons "Benevolent Butcher Budget" would do nothing but imperil our fragile economic recovery, so this really shouldn't be considered a legitimate option for a state that's been as economically depressed as ours.
The Democratic budget alternative is now here. And while it may not be perfect, it has revenue components and it starts a real conversation on actually balancing the budget. And remember, PLAN's plan is also here, and it puts forward a more progressive budget that truly does invest what's needed for our state and our people.
But whatever the final budget looks like, it must be a budget that raises revenue badly needed to invest in the infrastructure that will get us out of this great recession and into sustained recovery. That's why it's critical for us to contact our legislators and ask them to support a truly balanced budget with revenue necessary to build great schools, great health care, great roads, and the kind of great lifestyle that companies and workers will want to move to Nevada for.
So what are you waiting for? Please help us save our state!
