#1 Playing political games? So that's what it's called when lawmakers follow the laws that they themselves passed? What happened three months ago, when they had plenty of time to comply with the law?

#2 IOU's won't buy beans and rice. The citizenry will soon be "Stiffing" state revenue coffers with added withholding excemptions.

#3 Please read the NRO article posted in non - wot for more information about what is going on.
Synopsis: Republicans want to cut spending across the board. Sebelius wants to keep spending on her pet programs. Her governess better take that Obama job, because she is going to lose this publicity stunt.

#4 If you choose the option to roll over your refunds to the next tax year for credit and keep that up till it matches most of what's due, what's the state going to do when they get their own IOUs for a fiscal year?

#5 Procopius,
You can guess how that will work - your tax refund credits will not be usable for paying your taxes; your taxes must be paid with real money. Or eventually, toilet paper, whichever is worth more (see Zimbucks for example.)

#6 California, Kansas, and next the Federal Government? At some point someone is going to have to get serious about working us out of this financial hole--either to stop digging or to come up with a realistic plan to create jobs for people. We have outsourced jobs to other countries for several decades now. We have not addressed the illegal alien problem. We have lost large chunks of our manufacturing base. We have made bad trade decisions. We have lost our ability to provide our own energy--other than by buying from someone else such as OPEC nations. We have strangled ourselves with regulations. We have a government that is not responsive to the people and is out of control. We have politicians that promise everything and deliver little in order to get elected or re-elected. Our financial institutions are in a disarray. Greed and power have driven our country to the brink of collapse. Maybe tomorrow I'll have a better outlook after a drink and a good night's sleep.
