Austerity Mitch tells us a bedtime story

Let's all gather around the breakfast table and balance the family checkbook, children.
So, just like a family sitting around the kitchen table figuring out how to make ends meet, our community must come together to decide what we want and how to pay for it.
Whenever a politician comes at you fallaciously comparing a public budget with a family budget you know something bad is about to happen.  Probably the something bad has to do with this line.

"In the coming years, we will continue to sell city assets, further streamline City Hall...." 

Which could mean a lot of things.   Some of us have been talking it to death on the Parallel Internet today so I'm a bit done with it at the moment.  But the mayor's 2015 budget proposal is likely due out this week so I'll have a bunch more on it then.
