Massachusetts needs to reduce spending

An article today from the AP describes Governor Patrick's plan to deal with overspending by state government. He is contemplating laying off up to 2,000 state workers.

Shocking, you say?

Here's what's really shocking: Since Deval Patrick became governor, he has hired more than 4,800 state employees. Read the report here.

Governor Patrick, how about leaving the cities and towns alone this time and focusing on the real problem?
