As Carney continues to meet with Delawareans in “budget reset” meetings, a shocking theory is rippling through the state. Carney honestly has no idea what he is going to do about the budget and is really expecting the retirees he is meeting with to come up with something.
That he is really listening is both charming and troubling. Having come to believe that these meetings were a cynical ruse, people in the know aren’t sure what to make of the possibility that Carney is still spitballing.
“It is becoming clear that he has no (expletive) idea what he is going to do about the budget.” a recent budget reset meeting attendee told me. “I mean…property taxes? It is hard enough now for districts to pass initiatives. What will that do?”
