Re: “The New Budget Mess

Here is the real story. The Teachers unions and other big gov people. elected their stooges to office. They figured if they bankrupted the state we would be forced to raise taxes, but they broke the back of the people, They still want more but their is no more to give. Any new money from any source Oil, Gas, property Etc will only go to raise the pay and benefits of the gov workers. It is finally over. No system can continue that raises taxes, then pay, and taxes again Figure it out

Re: “Schwarzenegger on the Brink

Any money the state gets from anywhere (Oil Co, Gas Tax, Fed Gov, user fees, millionairs,
lotteryt,) will only lead to more taxing and spending. the level of spending at present is
un sustainable. We have sacraficed our lives and futures so a group of people (Gov Employees
can live and retire like they want. it is past time to say Hell No No More

Re: “Budget Crisis Fixed, Then Broken Again in Strange Day up Sacto Way

Here is the big picture, every dollar we give gov is a dollar we don't have to spend. We are
sacraficing our lives and futures so a group I call the Culutural Elite can spend our money.
They will never be satisfied no how much they get. It like they are addicted to Heroin they
always want a bigger fix. We can never retire but some can retire on 90 percent of their pay
as early as 51. The age of SS was raised to 67 because they said we lived longer, don't they
also live longer. And after we give the state more we have the Cities, Counties, Bart, and
every other screwey agency, crying for more. It is past time to say hell no no more.

Re: “Worst. Budget Crisis. Ever.

Here is the only solution, Mandate no person working for the Government including all teachers and adminstrators can get more than 50 percent in
retirment and work until 62 to get it. Pay 1/3 of their medical premium and return class size to 30 to one. Over 5 years cut property taxes by 50 percent and
sales taxes. this would restore thousands of jobs in the private sector. and allow people to spend their money on what they want.
If we raise taxes or institute new ones then the Gov workers will get their 10 percent raises and next year we can raise taxes again and give them
another 10 or 15 percent raise and so on and on. And after raising state taxes we can raise city and county taxes and obama wants to raise federal
taxes. The federal gov is stealing 300 billion from the SS payments and even with that money still spending 480 billion more than what it takes in.
Here is the bottom line. We can no longer afford gov as it is Structured
