Calif. County Prosecutions Halt May Spread

Tax cuts are very popular.  Yet, so are government services.  There seems to be a huge disconnect between many people´s desire for the benefits of government and their willingness to pay its costs.  The following story from National Public Radio (NPR) explains how budget cuts are forcing a county in California to stop prosecuting many crimes.  Citizens are outraged.  What will it take to increase the willingness of people to pay for the government services?  Will an increase in the crime rate do it?
