Budget reflects our values -- Gregoire

Gov. Chris Gregoire says her December budget was balanced, but "unfair, unwise."

It eliminates hospice care 2,500 patients, maternity care for 50,000 at-risk moms, eliminates health care for 70,000 individuals, 16,000 children, early learning for 1,500 kids, does away with all-day kindergarten, college aid for 12,300 students.

"That's not wise."
