So this afternoon Serena Unrein, the Executive Director of the Arizona Students’ Association and a graduate of Arizona State University, tweeted that she was
Seriously contemplating moving to a new state right now. You know, one that won’t cut every vital service we have. This budget is NOT okay.
The budget she was referring to, which is currently moving toward adoption by the Republican-controlled state legislature, would end full-day kindergarten in the state. It would cut more than a third of a million Arizonans from the state’s health care rolls, including nearly fifty thousand children. It would propose that voters defund a land conservation program and eliminate an early childhood education program.
State Senator Jack W. Harper saw Unrein’s comment, and was moved to reply. That reply?
Class. Pure class.
By the way, Harper deleted his tweet after Unrein responded to it. Cute.
