The Leader-Telegram opines about the irresponsible budgeting by our Governor.
Our view: Deferring tough but necessary decisions is irresponsible budgeting.
Gov. Jim Doyle and his fellow Democrats who control the state Legislature expressed pride that for the first time in decades they were able to get a budget passed and signed by the July 1 start of the new two-year budget period.
But an analysis of the final budget by the nonpartisan Wisconsin Taxpayers Alliance indicates that a shortcut to make that deadline left a $200 million hole in the budget that Doyle promises to close during the next two years by some unknown means.
