Economic Stimulus Update: Unemployment Benefits…FL

by Keith Knight

by Keith Knight

The states are between a rock and a hard place on the stimulus, to take or not to take, that is the question…

LYRICS, ROLLING STONES:

The fields of Eden Are full of trash
But if we beg and we borrow and steal
We’ll never get it back

People are hungry They crowd around
And the city gets bigger as the country comes begging to town
We’re stuck between a rock And a hard place
Between a rock and a hard place

Update from FL, where the GOP Governor and State Legislature are having the same battles over the Federal Stimulus as we are in AZ….

St Petersburg Times:

Crist portrays the federal aid as a panacea that would allow the state to avoid deep budget cuts, afford some property-tax cuts and increase spending.

“It’s a whole new world,” Crist said. “We’re in an economic crisis. We need this money to get us to a bridge to a better future. And I believe that by the time those three years pass we will be on the rebound.”

But three years of record job losses, plummeting tax collections and a flat-lined housing market mean legislators don’t all share Crist’s optimism. “The governor has a very positive outlook and I mean that with all due respect,” said Republican Senate President Jeff Atwater. “We don’t have a crystal ball. We don’t know how deep this (bad economy) is going to go. We don’t know how long this is going to last.”

That is the question. What happens if the economy doesn not recover and all these long term changes to state laws are enacted? The states would be in thrall to Federal handouts..

Legislators fret that Crist’s $66.5 billion budget proposal for next year is based on rosy financial assumptions that will likely be disproved when state economists meet March 13 to estimate state revenues. Also of concern in Crist’s budget: Of the government expenses that occur annually, 12 percent would be paid for through one-time money sources, such as the stimulus package.

What does it take to get it passed?

The state Constitution requires a supermajority vote of the Legislature if more than 3 percent of recurring expenses are funded from one-time money sources.

Legislators worry about expanding government programs — especially Medicaid — with money that would disappear in three years, leaving the state with large entitlement programs and less money.

“It’s like someone gave you a Mercedes and said they made a few down payments. Now the rest is up to you,” said Punta Gorda Republican Rep. Paige Kreegel.

Atwater and acting House Speaker Larry Cretul say they’re also unsure what strings might be attached to the hastily passed stimulus package.

The package seeks to ensure that legislators don’t cut programs that already receive federal money. So to get the bulk of the cash, Florida has to maintain relatively high levels of spending for health care, schools and transportation.

Get What You Need….

There was a definite lesson and pattern from the universe visible in the political world this past week…some grasp the lesson and ‘bloom where they’re planted’ and some pixx and moan and miss the point and any opportunity to be productive or happy ….a-hem….I am learning and some truly incredible individuals like Hillary are demonstrating the way it’s done…the Stones say it in a way I totally dig :0)

The Secret of Gratitude, something like that, the serenity to know what can be changed, accept what can’t, give the universe your all wherever it puts you, the way of the water, deep stuff like that….the universe rewards those who embrace what life gives them the way Hillary does…yep…

Love ‘The Big Chill‘, one of our all time favorite films… trivia, Lawrence Kasdan also wrote what Lucas film….The Empire Strikes Back and Jedi! oh snap! and the good Indiana Jones films as well…his name should be celebrated more methinks….Hey you can even apply the lesson of Kevin Costner whose role in the Big Chill was totally cut in editing (he was Alex whose funeral we see), but Kasdan then cast him in the lead in Silverado as recompense which launched his career in I think, a bigger way, he owned that role in Silverado….bloomin where you’re planted..kewl..

anywho… embracing where we are and what we are given while we can, a lovely and I betcha,  fulfilling, way to live….
