Kid Shellen of FreeRepublic.com has pointed out that the Pennsylvania budget has increased from $35.8 billion in 1998-99 to $61.3 billion in 2008-09.
Has your income increased 70 percent since 1998?
Or has state services improved 70 percent?
While the rate of increase has been higher under Rendell, Ridge/Schweiker didn’t do all that much better.
Rendell wants to spend $61.7 billion this year.
