Robert J. Samuelson: Economic crisis isn't over overseas - Tue, 27 Jan 2015 PST

If an initiative spends money, proponents would have to identify reductions elsewhere, or raise a tax. If an initiative reduces taxes, it would have to offset that with spending cuts to keep the budget balanced. Read more...
