Increasing taxation in this environment will lead to further job losses and further reduction in spending reducing sales tax receipts. But hey those of us employed in the private sector exist only to service our overlord state and federal employees.

Don't raise taxes. Cut benefits, lower wages, force more time off without pay, lay off as a last resort. This is what we have to do in private industry to make ends meet.

Yeah, I saw that on the news when I was down there last week. I'm just coming from a state with abysmal unemployment (MI). A little unsettling to say the least.
