RALEIGH – When trying to make sense of debates in Raleigh about government budgeting and tax reform, there are some general rules that can help with interpretation.

First, assume that whenever you hear talk about “broadening the revenue base,” the real goal is to narrow the revenue base. Second, assume that whenever you hear talk about “making tough decisions” the real goal is to make easy decisions and then pretend they’re not.
