Budget Writers Did Not Anticipate…

by Steve MacDonald

NHGOP WoodshedBudget writers did not anticipate…human nature, actually.  They never do.   The Democrat parties top-down, centrally-planned utopia completely ignores human nature, which is why Conservatives get so aggravated with Democrats and then Republicans who play along (whether they have bought in or given up).

From Skip’s post last night on unexpected budget issues relating to Medicare expansion…

Thank you, Rogue Republicans:

Budget writers did not anticipate that so many people would be added to Medicaid and that is one of the problems facing the department in trying to live within its budget this fiscal year.

Budget writers did not anticipate it, but Bloggers did.  We anticipated it dozens of times, in many thousands of words.

Wayne Mac Donald, the previous NHGOP Chair, once said “People who blog are those that are ruining the (Republican) party.”

I’m going to have to go with “Establishment Republicans are helping Democrats ruin New Hampshire.”

“Budget writers” agree, and sadly, this is just the beginning of a long line of things we will have warned you about that you ignored.

    – Bwahahaha! Omg, this is amazing. Who said something like this, one of our states budget writers? Wow.
    Really, just wow.
    Can you imagine a person that’s responsible for formulating an crafting an official state budget that gets submitted to his/her boss actually had the pure idiocy to admit they are incompetent by stating that they “did not anticipate” and/or prepare for unforeseen fluctuations in a budget.
    Jetson…You’re fired!

      Cynic that I am, I don’t believe they didn’t anticipate it for a single second. They have two choices: admit they knew (this makes them weak and/or corrupt) and went along anyway, or “admit” they are “incompetent”. As option 1 will implicate others, they’re stuck with option 2.
