Riley Working from Sundquist's Playbook

The World Around You

Now that his tax plan was crushed by Alabama voters, Bob Riley is busy following the footsteps of Mr. Sundquist here in Tennessee: axing programs with an eye for most impact on Alabama voters. What else can he do? Scholarships for needy individuals - gone. Matching federal funds for those scholarships - lost. The Alabama Technology Network, a cooperative program between UA and Auburn that provided streamlining advice for Alabama businesses - down for the count. Adult Education programs - losing a leg.

As Kristopher from TWAY says:

The legislators have to face up to their responsibility and be honest with the people. You asked for less government and now you are getting it.
