The Responsible Thing

Governor Corzine believes that raising taxes is “responsible”:

I believe what we’re doing is responsible

Tom Hester calls it clearly:

He said such an increase (sales tax increase) is needed to help the state pay for spending it currently cannot afford.

This is the crux of the difference between the two parties.

The state spends more than it brings in.  Corzine wants to resolve that issue by raising taxes.  I am of the belief that if a state cannot afford to spend the money, it needs to slash its spending, not raise taxes.

What do you think is the responsible thing?
