conservative tax cuts -> failed state

The Economist on the crisis in Oklahoma.

'Highway patrolmen are told not to fill their petrol tanks to save money. Those caught drunk-driving are able to keep their licences because there are no bureaucrats to revoke them. Prisons are dangerously overcrowded, to the point that the state’s director of corrections publicly says that “something is going to pop”.'

'He has also had to reduce Spanish classes and, for the tenth year running, delay buying new textbooks.'

'So dire is the shortage that school districts have found 1,850 adults without the necessary qualifications, given them emergency certifications, and placed them in classrooms.'
