State agency faces $172 million budget gap
The director of the Oregon Department of Human Services says the agency faces a $172 million shortfall in its current 2005-2007 budget.
"You could fix this by making cuts somewhere but I think it's a fool's errand," said Alan Bates, D-Ashland, one of several lawmakers who said Tuesday that they favored a special session.
My collection of DHS nonsense from previous posts:
Previous Post titled "DHS: Tips to flaunt the law"
This is the official word from DHS on how to get food stamps for illegal aliens. It's literally a step by step procedure complete with a common example. Be ready to throw up.

Talking about things like the "Department of Human Services Diversity Development Coordinating Council" and With jobs like "Diversity Coordinator" (Marita Baragli) and "Cultural Competency & Workforce Diversity Manager" (Open position) and "affirmative action officer" (Travis Richard) I can see why they need so much money.
Can't Marita and Travis handle the whole "diversity" thing by themselves? Do they really need a "Cultural Competency & Workforce Diversity Manager" who makes $59736 annually? Couldn't that 60k go towards helping the needy?

$3208 - $4476 MONTHLY
That's $53,712 annually + 15% benefits = $61768.80 total cost to the taxpayers
This job is to serve lesbians and low income women. No joke.

Who has a booth at the Portland Pride Parade? DHS! (I think that they are right next to the Freedom Socialist Party booth)
Previous Post titled "Another public agency openly works with illegal aliens"
About DHS helping to adminster programs throught OHOP which has scores of information on how to give public assistance to illegal aliens.
Previous Post titled "Tax dollars go towards hindering your constitutional rights"
Maybe DHS could save some money by not going around talking like this: "Guns are now a prevalent health hazard."
Previous Post titled "Don't let them fool you, they have money"
Another "now hiring" post.
This was just a quick search of my archives for the phrase "DHS." How much money could be save by eliminating some of the above nonsense? Let's see, we've got food stamps for illegal aliens, tons of job titles with the word "diversity" in them, participation in liberal events for unknown reasons, and thinking that it's their job to discourage gun ownership.
I see a few dollars there.
