Look for any department interfacing with the public to be cut. Lines at the DMV will be long. Getting a business permit will take weeks longer. Classroom sizes in public schools will get larger as teachers are cut while $200,000 per year administrators, who never see a classroom, are kept. Having a problem with your water bill, the garbage piling up in the street, or a recent tax return? Youll never get to talk to someone on the phone.
Police forces will be slashed, libraries, closed, and public parks left unmoved. Taxes and administrative fees will grow as will potholes in the streets.
