Right Wing Think Tank gives Delaware ‘F’ grade for its fiscal health

Filed in National by on September 29, 2017

You’d think Carney’s willingness (eagerness?) to play ball with trickle-down, wingnut economics would buy him some slack among discredited deficit alarmist.

A new report has given Delaware an “F” grade for its fiscal health.

The analysis from Truth in Accounting claims the state had an $8.5 billion gap between assets and liabilities in 2016. The nonprofit group focuses on state budgets.

Truth in Accounting said the burden on Delaware taxpayers rose by $6,600 per person from 2015 to 2016.

Truth in Accounting is a right-wing “non profit” and an arm of the State Policy Network. It is an “austerity first, last and always” think tank that compiles and analyzes government financials on the local, state and federal level.

Maybe cutting school budgets, while putting some more taxes on smokes, and cutting estate taxes will get us back in the TIA’a good graces?

But seriously. Carney and many Democrats are being played by these think tanks. Some dumb GOP legislator will wave this report around on the floor of the legislature and use it to claim that we need to cut “wasteful spending.”

If history is any guide, Carney will uncritically agree because it conforms to what his Chamber of Commerce buddies have been saying.
