May Revise article coming Friday

Tomorrow, May 14, I’ll be putting up an analysis of Gov. Schwarzenegger’s May Revise of his budget proposal for fiscal year 2010-11.

The Revise will be released around 1 pm. My piece should be up around 3 or 4 pm. Mark your calendar to check back then.

Arnold’s model ought to be New Jersey Gov. Christie, who is slashing both spending and taxes to get N.J. out of its depression. Massive spending cuts are obvious. But tax cuts are needed too to get reduce the strangle-grip government has around our necks.

UPDATE: My article is up here.

    p.s. This just in: Two REPUBLICANS–Anthony Adams and Martin Fletcher–have joined the Assembly to pass a resolution calling on President Obama to repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.”

    Based on this news, the Stanley Cup Playoffs will be held in Hell starting next week.
