It's popular to blame the politicians for the fiscal mess the states are in. However a large part of the blame can be placed on the voters themselves who year after year approve of bonds to pay for roads, police, schools, etc. And another part of the blame can be placed on the voters who vote to have various taxes cut but still demand pre-tax cut levels of municipal service. If you voted yes to a bond, any bond, then you are as complicit in the debt problem as the politicians.
This is a problem that has been growing for decades and it goes beyond Amazon. Will they go after a piece of the AdSense pie? If there's no more credit, the money has to come from somewhere.
