Maybe it's time to send somebody besides Democrats to Sacramento.
They control both houses of the Assembly and the governor's office, and projections are for even more of a deficit than anticipated in January. I am tired of government (at any level) spending more than it receives. You and I couldn't do that. I also don't want to have to make up the shortfall by paying more taxes just because officials can't manage the money properly. And I'm tired of excuses and blame games.
If they can't manage a small amount of money, why would I trust them with more?
It's time for a change.

if you want it to stop you will need to get your fellow voters to stop voting for intiatives with mandated funding. With these in place we can cut all kinds of things except those. This means that at some point we can cut no more and have to raise taxes to fund these mandated funding boondoggles. I hate to say it, but the majority of the electorate is financialy illiterate and they don't understand that when they vote for these initiatives they are voting themselves into the poor house. The intiative system is one of several things that are bankrupting this state.
