We may already have an answer on whether Janet Napolitano will attempt to take political credit for tax cuts she opposed in this story from today’s Business Journal:
Napolitano’s camp stresses that the governor supported tax cuts throughout the budget process and that she wanted to make sure the final product was fiscally responsible and included spending on key areas such as education and roads.
Well, c’mon, now. She never supported broad-based income or property tax cuts, as I pointed out earlier today. She did support rebate checks she could send to voters with her name on them right before the election, but only under pressure.
But the funniest thing about her comment is the notion that her proposed 23 percent spending increase somehow represents fiscal responsibility.
