OKLAHOMA budget crisis despite revenue pouring into the state treasury, the Legislature is wrestling with a self inflicted budget crisis that prompts cuts to EDUCATION,PUBLIC SAFETY AND HEALTHCARE. The problem is that the lawmakers over the last decade have created and expanded so many tax BREAKS and EARMARKED so much money for the SPECIAL PROJECTS that there's no longer enought for basic services.
Nevertheless,REPUBLICAN GOV. MARY FALLIN, who is pushing to cut the TOP PERSONAL INCOME TAX rate for 5.25 % TO 5%, said a basic strategy of lower taxes and more incentives will pay off in the long run.
Seven years ago ,the share was 55% to the state budget office, today, only 44% of revenue now goes into the General Revenue Fund, which supports most major state programs like SCHOOLS,PRISONS, AND AHILD WELFARE.
Ms. Maddow, please look into this and spread it on your show like smallpox !! IT, our Gov. IS IN FACT killing OKLAHOMANS every day with her outlandish ideas and laws cooked up in secret !
This was only part of a story in our newspaper BY Sean MURPHY /AP
You and ED seem to be the only ones who hear 'we the people' and can help us call these persons out and CHANGE THINGS !!
ERICK HOLDER canceled his trip to OKC after being told he would risk being arrested in our state this week......now I KNOW you can check that out too and hope you do !!
Oil companies have left our state with uranium in our soil and in our water......they only protect the people that have money and good health and a good name to go with it...............sad, but so sadly true. Will You and friends please help our state !!! They already put KEYSTONE PIPELINES through here.......left next to NO lasting jobs AT ALL ! LIE UPON LIE UPON LIE is all we are told ,fed, and forced to believe.
And even in OKLAHOMA, IF we use SOLAR OR WINDPOWER IN OKLAHOMA...GOV. MARY FALLLIN signed the 'solar surcharge' bill into law on Monday,April 21st,2014, permitting utilities to charge an extra fee to any customer using rooftop solar or a small wind turbines. Our legislature has nothing better to do than find new ways to take our HARD EARNED WAGES and manipulate it so they can take it from us legally !!!!
I know this is a RED STATE, but just as many GOP folks are begging for food and help and healthcare than just Democrats !!!!
THANKYOU FOR HEARING ME ................I LOVE YOU AND ED LIKE NOBODY KNOWS.............YOU ARE LIKE US....THE PEOPLE....THANKYOU AGAIN !!!!! MYbusiness
