Cut the budget for our sons and daughters
So says Florida House Speaker designate Dean Cannon (R-Winter Park). Yes, Representative Cannon, a downgrade in the bond rating for the state would amount to a temporary tax on our sons and daughters. However, if those sons and daughters can't attain the earnings provided by a college education, you've taxed them far more than you would by a temporary downgrade in Bond rating. In saving a dollar now, you are costing them hundreds of thousands of dollars in the future. Of course, by then you will have served your term as speaker and had your picture hung on the walls of the capital. All-in-all why not say that your legacy is more important than our sons and daughters.
