California budget now $8 Billion short

collapsed house

Earth to State of California. You really need to figure out what the budget shortfall is, give us one realistic number, and not continually upwardly revise the deficit. Else we citizens might think you’re incompetent, deliberately lying to us, or both.

I mean, first the deficit was $8 billion, then $12 billion, then $30-40 billion. The legislature, in a spectacular display of ineptitude, took several agonizing months to pass the budget. And now this? Oopsie, we are so sorry, but looks like we are off by another $8 billion. I think they have a teensy credibility problem.

The upcoming May 19 special election has a numbers of propositions that must pass for that recently passed train wreck of a budget to be implemented. The voters are in a foul mood and the state government appears unable to do even basic math (we have $x in revenue and $y in expenses. Calculate the deficit.) So the propositions may well be voted down on general principles.

And then the protests and tax revolts will really begin.

  1. Do we really have anything positive to say about the Democratic leadership? When the would promote illegal immigration over their own countryman? 300.000 jobs in construction (stated Heritage Foundation) for illegal aliens in the in the Senate bill loophole? Hundreds of billions of dollars are soaked up, in mostly undisclosed benefits–health care—education–prisons—and a conglomeration of government handouts, unavailable to legal residents.

    In an atmosphere of underhanded secrecy, Democrats pushed through the Stimulus, then the Omnibus bills, but removing funding for 13 year old—E-Verify. With a stroke of the pen its actual draft disappeared mysteriously accept to observant sources. But they are irate because it’s extended with funding till September.

    Attracting no attention from the public Sen.Harry Reid, Speaker Pelosi and 48 other devious plotters, including:- Akaka–Inouye–Begich–Bennet–Udall–Bingaman–Udall–Boxer–Feinstein–Brown–Burris–Durbin–Byrd–Rockefeller–Cantwell– Murray–Cardin– –Mikulski–Carper–Kaufman–Casey–Conrad– Dorgan–Dodd–Lieberman–Feingold–Kohl–Gillibrand–Schumer–Hagan–Harkin–Johnson–Kerry– Landrieu–Shaheen–Leahy–Sanders–Levin –Stabenow–Lincoln–Pryor–Menendez–Lautenberg–Merkley–Wyden–Nelson–Reed–Whitehouse–Warner/

    With complete and utter shameful disregard for the American worker they had killed E-verify, so that illegal alien workers could be hired. Could be they snuffed E-Verify, because their are millions of illegal labor in Sanctuary cities, like Los Angeles, San Francisco, Salt Lake City and many more. Call these rogues up and ask their aides why are you supporting the illegal immigrant workers. Then tell them a vote of no-confidence or better still a recall for their traitorous acts against Americans. Why even a Stimulus, when the legal population, have to compete with illegal labor. Why are Americans and documented residents even having to support illegal immigrants with billions in their tax money. Don’t accept these corrupt lawmakers time restraints—tell them you want E-Verify for an– INCESSANT–period.
