The article about the $200,000 it cost to clean up the Capitol in the wake of last year’s protests (Friday’s Tribune) seemed to make light of the small amount of money involved in this fiasco of a recall effort.

Let’s add in the $9 million for security and the $9 million for the recall itself. And you can bet that other expenses will come along, too.

All this to try to restore benefits for public workers, benefits that are still so many times better than those in private sector.  Enough is enough.
