Who's watching the Till?

Never before do I remember so many states getting into financial difficulty, some have been going without budgets for several years falling in debt by the millions and a couple in the billions. What has happened to fiscal responsibility. How can a state continue to offer ridiculous and unnecessary abatements to companies with no guarantee of profit or benefit on the other side of the agreement. as we continue to sit in wonder as to how this is happening to other states, turn your attention to what's happening in our borders, perhaps China offered more a refuge than a place to practice diplomacy.
