The Columbia Missourian has a fresh tale of Democrat discontent, this time coming from state representative Chris Killy:
He said he wants the trend to be reversed — a 7 percent increase in state appropriations rather than a decrease.
Kelly likened the cut to getting punched in the face and only getting a black eye instead of getting two teeth knocked out.
"I'm happy that I didn't get my teeth knocked out, but I'm not too crazy about my black eye," he said.
If the cut is imposed, the quality of education in our institutions will drop, he said.
“The governor puts a bright face on it, but over time, these cuts will have a negative effect,” Kelly said.
Telling the press that you're happy your teeth didn't get knocked out isn't exactly a stunning endorsement.
