6. I do not think that it was just the economic recession that hurt the
states. Booosh cuts in both his terms did not help states at all. What happened is that the Fed money stopped coming to the states. They were forced to pick up the shortfalls for mandated programs and were broke long before 2008. I am glad to hear that they are getting some recovery but am wondering how much of that is from passing the buck down to the counties and cities?
