House, Senate agree on slashed budget

The House and Senate have reached budgetary accord.
Democratic leaders in the state House and Senate have reached agreement on deep cuts in funding for public schools, higher education, health care and other state services totaling nearly $4 billion.

The agreement was announced moments ago and details are still coming.
Details. We all know who lives there.

Update: As the article expands, we get this juicy quote:
"There are a lot of cuts that we made that rip the hearts out of all of us having to make them," said Sen. Rodney Tom, D-Medina, vice chairman of the Senate Ways and Means Committee.
Write your own punchline.
