COMMENTS:
I'd ask these two men to comment on the growth of the state budget... plot it year-by-year and it's essentially an exponentially increasing curve, *far* outpacing population growth. Hence questions like, why does it cost four or five times as much (in inflation-adjusted dollars) to educate a K-12 student now compared to several decades ago? Same thing for the university costs... huge budget increases *far* outpacing the student population growth. Hmmmm.... could it be insatiable "big government" at work here?
