There are a large number of bureaucrats who order the creation of useless computer generated reports, which in turn require an army of people to maintain.
If and when job cuts come- because tax increases are unpopular, those jobs are undoubtably safe.
Any job cuts will have to come from the ranks of the police, or prison guards - or some other area which will inconvenience or endanger the public sufficiently that they will come around to accepting tax increases.
Yeah, the sacred cows like the more than 10,000 child support workers (State Department & local county child support agencys) plus God knows how many Welfare workers and Social workers will remain employed and funded. They are working with the Legislative Analyst’s Office and the California State Association of Counties (CSAC) to show their respective programs as “critical” and “cost-effective” and all those other ridiculous buzz-words these double-chinned, parasitic bureaucrats throw out there while panhandling at the capitol... Like economist Thomas Sowell wrote about, Self-Congratulations as a Basis for Social Policy! In spite of the evidence before us.
They target the most visible impacts, so voters will get p*ssed off and vote for an increase. Year after year people tolerate this sh*t. How do we get them to make the same reasonable compromises that the rest of us make in a down economy?
It seems like things *miraculously* improve about the time of the next election, so people vote the idiots back in. How do we get the masses of gullible a*ses to see the big picture and change things? And how do we overwhelm the growing number of leaches sucking the government te*t that will always vote for more taxes?
It is time to organize a plan that will cause change. Somehow we need to move beyond complaining.
