    Those choices are being made nationwide. Today in NH they are looking for another $270 million on top of draconian cuts already made, while having finally put to rest the effort to enact gambling in a state where politicians take pledges not to impose a sales or income tax. It feels like if they cut any more, the state will implode at some point.

    Couldn’t disagree more.

    How do higher taxes help a state economy during a recession? Next year taxes will increase anyway because of the expiration of the Bush tax cuts. You want to pile more on top of those? Calif, e.g., recently raised taxes and revenues dropped, they didn’t increase.
