Taft: Hike taxes or face cuts in schools - "If legislators won't raise cigarette and alcohol taxes, Gov. Bob Taft said yesterday he will cut funding for primary and secondary education and state universities by $175 million." Peter Silverman, president of the Toledo Board of Education, said, "A cut of that magnitude mid-year would be devastating. We did not budget for that. Four million dollars is, on average, 80 teachers. It would lead probably to layoffs." Amazing. The only area of government that I'm aware of that's being cut is a prison in Lima. Of all things to cut. It seems we need more prisons not fewer. Government expands during the "boom" times, and to pay for it now, taxes are raised. What about eliminating the needless fat in Columbus?
