More Debt in Budget

From a Gannett New Service Article:

"The spending plan adopted by lawmakers on Thursday would add $15 billion to the state's already huge pile of debt"

Current debt pile: $49 billion

"The point is were getting further and further into debt, and nobody seems to be worried about it" Assemblyman William Parment (D - North Harmony).

I don't want to get in the habit of always correcting Assemblymen but the sentence above probably would've been more accurate if Mr. Parment had said, "no lawmakers seem to be worried about it" since while that appears to be accurate, saying no citizens are worried is not correct. Some of us are.
