Regarding the BND Local News story on Feb. 15, "Advocates urge state funding for preschools."
I need to understand how a state tens of billions of dollars in debt can afford more spending. Why isn't this advocate group advocating for less spending?
How bad of a credit rating and large of a debt does the state have to have before people figure out the state is broke? If we can't get this straight in our minds now, wait until the state shifts teachers pension funding to the local school districts -- meaning you, the taxpayers.
When that happens, do you think the state will lower our state taxes because it is no longer paying for teachers pensions? We all know the answer to that one.
