Timing should be the focus

Why is it that bureaucrats can only find "savings" in their budgets when they want to spend it on something else? "The school board will identify additional cost savings in its budget to provide an additional one-half percent increase..." Is it not their moral obligation to find these "savings" when they aren't looking to spend it on something else? Bureaucrats... you got to love them and their logic! They really are like the proverbial shopper maxing out their credit cards and then talking about all the money they saved... It's so typical of politicians and bureaucrats to focus only on their perceived needs while ignoring the people as if it is somehow ok to simply take what they want. After all, government at all levels has nothing until it first takes it from the rightful owners.
