Money From Nothing

Alternate Title: Dire Straits to Perform Live in Olympia!

The state released a new budget forecast this week. Thanks to the real estate bust the bean counters are projecting another $100,000,000 plus deficit, on top of the already $2.5 billion dollar hole that the Rossi campaign has been making hay with.

Then consider the cost of gas and dairy products, and it’s looking very much like the Seattle COLA this year could be a killer—more than the 3.4% it was last year.

The irresistible force (I-732) is setting itself up for a run against the immovable object (the state budget), and it’ll be a hell of a fight to watch.
