California budget deficit now at nearly 30 billion
A few months back the deficit was estimated at maybe 20 billion, then it was 21 billion, now it’s nearly 30 billion. Um, no one in Sacramento knows how to count?
One wonders what the real numbers are, and how much higher it will go. And of course, Gov. Gray Davis, who campaigned on making education a priority, is now slashing education as fast as possible. He has yet to go after the bloated salaries of the prison guards, whose union, in a bizarre coincidence, is among his biggest contributors.
