Do the "haves" yet understand recession?
The USA, and the world, is in a recession. Yet, I wonder if many of the leaders really understand that. In the town of Weston, CT, the proposed new education budget is up 2.62% while the expected state contribution will be down 15%! Since even in affluent towns residents are losing jobs and income, how realistic is that. This is happening in the neighboring towns too.
