    All states will issue IOU letters very soon if Obama doesn't give the more money to stay afloat.

    No surprise here, how else do you think so called public officials will continue paying themselves 6 figure salaries along with all of their closest friends?

    That's what pisses me off the most. They cut the day programs for the severely disabled- the ones who can't do sh!t about it, and these people get put back in their families' homes. Then another family member has to quit their job to stay home with their relative all day...

    But whatever you do, don't lay off cops or firefighters!

    Meh, seems like it would be easier to help a municipality keep a particular worker working than it would be to create a whole new job and fill it. However you do it, you end up with one extra worker working with the money than you would without.

    The problem is it just hides the underlying cause of too much spending. It does "save" a job now. And if the economy magically picks up maybe that job will be saved forever. But it's more likely that this time next year the states will still have too much spending for their revenue because this "stimulus" is just hiding the underlying problem.
