◼ Budget battle continues in Sacramento: Legislature approves cuts, GOP proposal has some environmental groups worried - Times-Standard
How can Chesbro say this - “It is disappointing that so many of our Assembly Republican colleagues who keep saying they want to reduce the size of government are unwilling to join us in voting to make necessary cuts.” - with a straight face? have you SEEN any attempts to make the necessary cuts? NO. All you hear is we should raise taxes. And look what his party is doing to the Governor of Wisconsin. Where they really did make the tough choices. The Republicans there needed a police escort to get to work while the Democrats fled the state, hiding out in a resort rather than work on the tough cuts. California has to face reality and you will see them take the coward's way out - choosing to finagle a way to declare bankruptcy in order to get out from under the Union contracts, rather than dealing with it honestly.
