“The truth is that Grant County’s problems are largely its own fault. For two decades, county officials refused to raise taxes. Instead, to make up for funding shortfalls, they dipped into reserves, draining them by some $2 million over the past eight years. “Over time, of course, if you don’t replace those reserves, you’re going to have a situation where you have a deficit,” says Jamie Baker, executive director of the county chamber of commerce.”
GOP crapanomics strikes again. Kansas learned this lesson the hard way too.
