Charles Arlinghaus: Exciting wins elections, but boring governs well
Federal politicians are incapable of balancing the budget because they don't have to. At the state level, we have to. But even with that restraint, some decisions are passed off.
There are two areas, though, were the incentives don't align: state debt and infrastructure.
Sound fiscal management is boring and boring doesn't win elections. I wish it did.
