Republicans have no economic senseRegarding Lloyd Omdahl’s Aug. 12 column, “Can North Dakota handle wealth?”
A couple of weeks back I heard the governor on the radio saying that now that we have a large surplus, we have to cut the state budget. He simply replaced “deficit” or “slight surplus” with “large surplus” and uttered the rest of the usual Republican governor’s budgetary pronouncement. They don’t know how to handle a large surplus.
They can’t even come up with a new phrase that makes any economic sense.
