The possibilities include cutting $3.6 billion from education, reducing the state’s firefighting budget by 10%, and releasing 40,000 low-risk inmates to cut prison costs, Mr. Schwarzenegger said. The state also may have to borrow $2 billion from local governments, he said.
Great Arnold, cut the programs that a bare bones government is supports to support and keep all the fat!
Arnold also stated that “This is not a scare tactic,”. Then what is it Arnold? I can come up with a long list of programs that can be be cut today with little to no impact on the majority of voters. And no those cuts do not include teachers, firefighters, policemen, state park ranges or necessary public works projects.
Please stop this crap and just make the necessary cuts! It’s like a band-aid, it’s time to close our eyes and pull it off.
SACRAMENTO — Assembly GOP leader Mike Villines of Clovis is expected to resign his leadership post today, as anger builds among anti-tax conservatives over a budget deal he negotiated.
The Assembly’s 29 Republican members will vote on his replacement at a morning meeting, although Villines is expected to keep the job during a transition period. The favored candidate appears to be Sam Blakeslee of San Luis Obispo.
“According to a recent study by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, those who make more than $43,200 (the top 40%) pay 99.1% of all income taxes, the taxes that support our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, and, for example, fund the federal portion of transportation, education, environmental and welfare spending.”
This is shocking, mostly to the California Taxpayer! Who in California that works hard, has a family and perhapse owns a home makes less than $43,200? And the state wants to collect more and more money from the taxpayer. Amazingly stupid!
And to rub salt in the wound 40/100 people do not pay ANY taxes! But they get stimulus checks!
My apologies for not posting anything for over a week. I was vacationing to get some rest from work. Like most of us I work extremely hard so I can pay all my bills without a bailout! On the same topic of bailouts, I received the video below from a reader and thought it was very appropriate. Enjoy!
Thank you to all those who emailed me about the Barbara Boxer ad on the site. I am working to block all ads of that kind from the website. Also thank you to all those who have supported the website.
