You have to show the pain in order to get anyone to pay attention....
I think his budget and recent actions are intended to show the pain, you combine that with a likely court ruling that they can't touch the pensions, you are then set up for a tax increase. Fundamentally no one seems really willing to do anything in Springfield (that isn't unique to Springfield) unless a full crisis is on. This is making the crisis plain and real.
You may very well think I am nuts, but I think that is how it is going to break.
