At 7:30 PM.
Today the California Legislature passed a budget which would resolve the immediate crisis. Governor Schwarzenegger will veto the bill.
The basic problem is the national and international economic crisis. Over 40 states are in trouble. California is in particular trouble because of the 2/3 rule.
Republicans incessantly demand more school budget cuts.
So, now I have 120 fewer Sheriffs to protect the neighborhood.
250 fewer teaches to assist school children. Cuts in higher education that will hurt the economy for decades.
The Republicans want to create a society like Mississippi. They can win elections there.
