18. Well, how else is California supposed to bridge the $26 billion budget gap?
Edited on Tue Jul-28-09 05:10 PM by 4lbs
We idiots in CA voted down more taxes.

Heck, people here had a tantrum when state sales tax increased by a half-percent!

So, unless the Governor can get a $30 billion gift from the federal government, and he can't raise taxes, because the people won't let him, he'll have to cut social programs and lots of things.

I'm in favor of raising taxes, and voted such earlier this year. Yet, I was in the minority.

The idiots here in the state vote against funding programs, especially with taxes, and then wonder why the state cuts services and programs.

Genius! :sarcasm:
