6. Oh, this is rich
"If he really cares about protecting schools and our most vulnerable, he will stop whining and get back to the negotiating table so we can hammer out a bipartisan budget deal in time to avoid additional harm to our economy. No one ever said that leadership would be easy," said Sen. Sam Blakeslee, R-San Luis Obispo.

Blakeslee is considered a moderate repuke, one of a handful who has not signed Grover Norquist's odious "No Tax Pledge". Thus, he was considered key to the passage of, you guessed it, a bipartisan budget deal last session. To absolutely no one's surprise, he toed the repuke no-tax party line. Hence, no deal; instead, massive budfget cuts falling particularly heavily on Medi-Cal (our version of Medicaid). Not even Gov. Brown appears intested in restoring those. :(
