This is a great website and article about the out of control budget in Oklahoma.
The Oklahoman recently informed us that University of Oklahoma president David Boren says a tuition increase is forthcoming. President Boren places the blame on what he calls an “irresponsible” state income-tax cut. “It is time people take a stand and make a decision,” he is quoted as saying. “Do you want some services from your government that improve your quality of life, or do you want tax cuts? You have to pick one or the other. You can’t have both.”
It is difficult to believe that Oklahomans aren’t presently receiving services from their government, given that Oklahoma government spending is currently atrecord levels. In fact, many would argue that it’s this government profligacy which is in fact “irresponsible.” And if asked to “take a stand and make adecision,” their decision likely would not be the one President Boren was hoping for.
