“It’s going to impact jobs in our state, right when we’re having dramatic a turnaround in our economy. But, this will have a – we’re going to have a difficult time with this.
“I think it’s ridiculous that they can’t find other ways to cut, to do the right thing to make sure we keep growing jobs in our state.

“I just want to keep our economy going. Look, when I came into office I had to reduce the budget by $3.7 billion dollars in a $70 billion budget. We did it with common sense solutions. We didn’t take a meat cleaver to it. We didn’t do things that would adversely impact jobs. We did the right thing and that’s why our economy is booming again.”
“I didn’t do things that adversely impact jobs like this will in our state. This is ridiculous what they’re doing. They had other ways to cut this. I’m concerned about jobs in our state right when we have dramatically had a turn in our economy.”

This appears to be for some political move. I just think it’s ridiculous because it’s going to impact jobs. Our families want jobs.”
