And so the squealing begins….
The State of Colorado is facing over a $1 billion budget shortfall. Services must be cut. Services will be cut.
It is basic math.
A plan to end subsidized breakfast for some public school students is among the suggestions. The Denver Post is aghast. Its lead editorial today declares that the “Least among us deserve better.” The Post says “there are other places to cut.” Of course, they do not name any of these other places.
Likewise, letter writers proclaim their nobility in criticizing the plan.
I suggest the Post and other self-proclaimed champions of the downtrodden, at the very least, suggest where to cut instead of merely saying “don’t cut here!”
