    What's funny is when GW took office in 2001, he increased state aid to levels no other president had. With all the new funding they recieved, states still ran deficits. Does anyone still need to be told that gubmit is too big on all levels? Does anyone outside of Patters feel that gubmit is run as efficiently as a normal business? At what point will people realize that the gubmit is not the answer to every, and all problems. Gubmit needs to downsize dramatically.


    U.S. governors seek $1 trillion federal assistance

    PHILADELPHIA (Reuters) - Governors of five U.S. states urged the federal government to provide $1 trillion in aid to the country's 50 states to help pay for education, welfare and infrastructure as states struggle with steep budget deficits amid a deepening recession.

    The governors of New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Ohio and Wisconsin -- all Democrats -- said the initiative for the two-year aid package was backed by other governors and follows a meeting in December where governors called on President-elect Barack Obama to help them maintain services in the face of slumping revenues.

    Gov. David Paterson of New York said 43 states now have budget deficits totaling some $100 billion as tax revenues plunge.
