…and sample The Great American Liberal Experiment. How’s that going for you by the way?
You’ve racked up nearly $70 billion in general obligation debt, and that doesn’t include your $500 billion unfunded pension liability. Your own analysts predict you’ll face a hole of at least $80 billion over the next four years.
Your government’s run by a brothel of environmentalists, lawyers, public-sector unions and legislative bums. When they’re not taxing or spending, they’re creating regulations and commissions like the Board of Barbering and Cosmetology and the California Blueberry Commission. Many businesses would leave if it weren’t for your sunny climate.
Which may explain why you’re so obsessed with climate change. If your climate changes, no one, including your Hollywood friends, would tolerate you anymore. So you’ve created a law to tax carbon emissions—no matter that it will kill jobs.
California is broke. Broke broke broke (That’s Renée Zellweger in Jerry Maguire). Most Californian’s think their elected officials are to blame so you’d think a change of course would be in the cards, like the rest of the country…right?
Not a single incumbent state legislator lost re-election this year, including one Democrat who died a month ago (no joke). What’s scarier is that you’ve just given almost all of the keys to statewide offices to Democrats.
So if you want to peer into the future of America, had most if it not changed course last Tuesday evening, you needn’t look so far away to Greece. Go west to “Cah Lee For Nee Uh!”
You think it was fun watching Washington bail out a whole industry? Wait until it’s a state whose economy would be in the top ten if it were a country.
They have a new State Motto: America’s Cautionary Tale.
