Source: The Nevada Democrats themselves. I added in the pink trend line to show you the housing bubble spending Nevada's Democrats want to maintain. Nevada Democrats want $1.5 billion above and beyond the FY 2012 and FY 2013 figures.
Nevada Democrats unveiled their budgetary wish list today. They want $7.8 billion in spending - about 18 percent more than we're spending now. Of course, they realize they can't get that so they'll settle for $7 billion, far more than we're spending now,
$7 billion happens to be about as much as we spent during the economic boom in the mid 2000s - also known as the housing bubble.
In other words, Nevada Democrats want to keep the government spending bubble going. That is just irresponsible and unrealistic.
Maybe they really do believe that government spending can turn the ship around because they know how to spend our money better than we do. The problem is after 4 years they've only made things worse. I think its time to try a new tactic - namely putting the dollars back in the hands of Nevada's citizens.
