Budget Cut Blues

This AP story is typical of many we will be seeing as budget battles are fought in many states:
“Ernie Bulls and Gloria Padilla pose on their couch in their living room in New Haven, Conn., Thursday, Jan. 30, 2003. Bulls, who is completely blind, and Padilla who is legally blind and can see out of only one eye, have lost their jobs assembling T-shirts because of state budget cuts.”
Don’t expect to see any stories about the jobs that are lost because tax increases slow job creation in the private sector.
