The article suggests that critics of the Nevada state budget offer alternatives to the budget rather than just filibustering. It reacts to the complaints made by government employees over the 6% wage cut and the objections made by Senate Majority Leader Steven Horsford on the plan to shut down the Nevada State Prison. The author states that if these critics cannot offer any alternatives to the budget deficit, it is best that they shut up.
