Well, good:

“What we are being hit by isn’t a tropical storm that will come and go, with sunshine soon to follow. It’s much more likely that we’re facing a near permanent reduction in state tax revenues that will require us to reduce the size and scope of our state governments. And the time to prepare for this new reality is already at hand.”

It used to be that government jobs paid less but the benefits were very cushy. This was the trade off a person made when they decided to serve the public good. This has changed pretty dramatically since the government began raiding the public cookie jar. Now you can get the cushy benefits and a dramatically bigger salary, and all you have to do is sacrifice for the public good!
