This is becoming a pet peeve of mine. Every state legislature across the country continues to put off the real difficult budget decision, in hopes that the economy will come roaring back. Legislating isn't all ribbon cutting, and passing resolution honoring the local high school football team. We put our representatives in office to make tough decisions, and the decisions don't get much tougher than deciding how to fix these broken budgets.
I really liked the message I was able to get across with this cartoon. It is a little clunky, and I'm not crazy about having the two panels, but I thought the idea was strong enough to withstand the pedestrian layout.
