Un-Fun Unfunded Mandates

I'm having an email tiff with a local pol over whether unfunded mandates are, as he states, "the fundamental reasons for increased spending." That used to be my song five years ago, but I think it's gotten old. Now when people sing it, I hear, "We can't do anything for you. Suffer." I'd rather they told me, "We have a slew of unfunded mandates that we can't control, but we're working hard to cut spending anyway."
