PROP 100

So everyone knows that I'm a teacher and obviously a supporter of Proposition 100, but I really hope everyone else is too! This TEMPORARY sales tax increase will help education so much in Arizona! I totally agree with the opposition that the government needs to seriously rethink the spending habits, but let's not teach them a lesson while destroying the educational system!! Did you know these facts??
If 100 doesn't pass the following will most likely happen!
K-12 schools - Cut $420 million
Higher education - Cut $100 million
Public Safety - Cut $85 million
13,000 prison inmates will be released
Police and firefighter response time will slow due to the $85 million cut on public safety
20,500 jobs will be lost
Arizona will lose an extra $442.5 million in federal funds

Don't know about you but I really don't want to have 13,000 inmates wandering around Arizona just because the government screwed up the budget!! Please make your voice heard!
