NJ Politics: Where Spending The Same Amount As Last Year Is Called A "Cut"

In a NYT news piece on the NJ state budget that, among other things, reduced the property owner's rebate and increased some taxes, the Democrat-dominated legislature:

mindful of Mr. Codey's [the Governor's] declaration during his budget address in March that "the days of spending like there's no tomorrow end today," agreed to spending cuts that helped keep the budget figure at $27.9 billion. That was essentially the same as last year's budget.

In NJ-NYT parlance, the same outlay as last year is called "spending cuts". But increasing taxes and increasing the surplus should mean a decrease in taxes. Surplusses always get spent-see what politicians have done with the Social Security surplus. I wish I could treat my home budget the same way.
