1.5% vs. 50%

Just a quick note, with more to follow. 

1.5% is the approximate percentage reduction in the Pennsylvania legislature's budget for the next fiscal year per Gov. Corbett.

50% is the approximate percentage reduction in the Pennsylvania's university system's budget for the next fiscal year per Gov. Corbett.

Please, please someone try and defend this madness.  Personally I'd like to propose the following rule that would apply to all governors in Pennsylvania henceforth:

"You can only cut spending to educational programs if you make similar percentage cuts to the executive and legislative branches of government."
