    Thus far I’m disappointed, though we’ll see what the budget brings.

    I didn’t get the sense of root and branch change, except for Medicaid. It just seems like a bunch of add ons and things already proposed or in the works. There are some thing that need to be gotten rid of. Perhaps we’ll hear about those Feb. 1.

    What I heard was what he didn’t say, the problems not identified as such. That’s always as important or more important than what he did say.
