Quote of the Day

As we continue with budget hearings in the City of Toledo - and the tap dancing being done by so many of our elected officials - I thought this quote from Rep. Marsh Blackburn (R-TN) to be especially appropriate:

"Government does not have a revenue problem; government has a spending problem.

Government does not have a revenue problem; government has a priority problem.

It is time that we begin to fine tune our focus and decide what the priority of government ought to be. "

Good quote, it fits many situations.

Maggie,

A great quote, but with one thing missing:

It is time that we aggressively focus our attention on the limits of government based on whatever compact, charter, or constitution under which it was formed.
