All the Government We Can’t Afford

Bravo to Silver State Confidential reader Jeff Bobeck of Pahrump for capturing the simplicity of demonstrating the charade that we can’t cut Nevada’s government by $400 million so as to live within the means of a $6.3 billion budget that can be funded with existing tax revenue and WITHOUT extending the “sunsets.”

“Are they trying to tell us that nothing can be cut on this list?” Bobeck wrote to me on Saturday.  “Any rational person reading this list of agencies and departments would realize that Nevada’s state government is way too big already.  The problem is not tax revenue, it is spending.”

Amen and hallelujah!

Here’s the list of Nevada state agencies and departments Mr. Bobeck is talking about.  If you’re a true limited-government conservative, read it and weep…
