Arizona Deficit Ratio 2nd Only to California

The Arizona state budget crisis is the second worst in the country as a percentage behind California, according to this article http://finance.yahoo.com/loans/article/105909/States-That-Can%27t-Pay-for-Themselves .  So the best ideas the governor can come up with right now are selling the state lottery that we’ve already borrrowed money against, increased photo radar revenues, and selling the state tobacco settlement share.  Our budget debt ratio is absurd at nearly 20%, I wonder when she’ll start suggesting that we should properly inflate our tires then charge for the air to do it as a way to bring her fiscal irresponsibility under control.
Tim Nelson thought of the day:  Is this the type of fiscal responsibility that the Democratic candidate for the  Maricopa County Attorney’s Office would bring from his experience in the governors office?
