County Has A Pet Monkey
Once again it is budget time and our commissioners have to decide what to cut or not fund in the education bracket so that they can pay the countie's protion of medicaid. Let's see how that goes, we are a poor undeveloped county and to support our welfare recipicants we most sacifice our children's education. Thus creating more poor under educated people in need of welfare thus denying future children their education and so on. The state says that they might take the medicaid burden off the county and raise our tax rate to cover the cost. They also are saying that we have to pay our teacher 8% more and a lot of that will come from the county (can you say increase in class size and less teachers). The problem is the welfare system. Medicaid, medicare, welfare and other social systems add problems to all levels of government. We the people of the US and our elected leaders for the last 30+ years have created this monkey and nothing will get better until we get it off our back.
