A Short Comment On The Governor’s Lottery Borrowing Plan

The Governor wants to borrow future lottery revenue to help pay this years bills.
If we pay this years bills with next year’s revenue, then there is that much less revenue next year to pay next year’s bills.
It’s time to realize that borrowing to pay future bills doesn’t work. This governor’s past borrowing is a big part of why we are in the mess we are in today. Now we owe the money we borrowed and the interest.
There are ways to solve this but they simply are going to have to involve asking the wealthy and corporations to pay their fair share. There is no way around it anymore.
Borrowing isn’t an answer, it’s just a way to cover the problem.
