The SacBee is highlighting Gov. Moonbeam Brown's recent realization that
Gov. Jerry Brown said in a video release today that California's budget deficit has mushroomed to $16 billion, nearly twice as high as the $9.2 billion he estimated in January. Brown blamed a slow recovery from the recession and the federal government's blockage of state spending cuts for the widening gap.
Yeah, right, Governor. You are off by 74% in just four months! Anyone who is paying any sort of attention knows he is way over his paygrade as he tries to "fix the economy" with more taxes, higher marginal tax rates for "the rich" and his union-pandering on High Cost Rail. Very sad what he is doing to this great state, but we get the government we deserve.
