This Week In State Budget Surpluses: Ever Upward

Way to go New York! You've just achieved your first budget surplus since the late 1990s, thanks in part to your consistent record of unbelievably high taxes and fraudulent accounting practices.

That one billion big ones you just raked in will go a long way towards fixing road infrastructure, paying off the interest on New York City's debt, cutting rebate checks for upstate taxpayers, and... . And it's gone. Sorry about that false alarm, Rochester. See you again in the year 3021.
