This just says it better than 1,000 words ever could.
Okay, this is even better.
This state has been fucking itself for a long time now. The best thing that could happen would be for the Feds to let California sort out this budget problem on its own, but what are the odds of that? Just for fun, if I were Arnie, I’d propose that 100% of the cuts come out of public education, which sucks here anyway. No one will miss it. Something better will rise to take its place. Or not. No one said there weren’t going to be discontinuities along the way.
But, as you all know, I largely live (live largely?) in a fantasy world. Some other blogger wrote…
“Californians don’t really have to make a hard choice between cutting spending and raising taxes since The One will surely force you and I to bail them out, but per that gruesome Heritage graph illustrating his own deficits over the next decade, the national reckoning’s coming.”
Arnie has already floated the idea of commuting the sentences of thousands of illegal alien criminals and turning them over to the Feds presumably for deportation. Who is more fucking crazy? Him or me?
