No more money eh?

What a pity for the government employees.

These obese control freaks haven't seen anything yet.

They're just now figuring out the tax payers are broke and beat down by their criminally corrupt and mismanaged government?

As they lined their pockets, they couldn't see this coming?

What a bunch of lying AHs.

How many suits up in Sacramento were fired or were forced to take a 60% pay cut, while slashing their tax paid medical benefits and retirement pensions?

The only people with money are the overpaid government employees and government retirees, who are receiving tax paid lottery style government retirement pensions.

How about we tax the s**t out of their government retirement pensions? They got money!

Works for me~

Cut education to the bone?..It's what happens when these traitorous bastards attempt to force the tax payers to pay to education millions from Mexico.

I spit in their faces and hope they all go broke, with their corrupt system cartwheeling down range...

Wait till the tax revenues drop to the point where their isn't enough to pay their bloated government salaries, or the hundreds of thousands receiving government lottery style government retirement pensions.

No more money for them?

This can't happen soon enough!

If revenues remain low, drastic education cuts will kick in.

Just wait till tests show no difference in student outcomes despite the "drastic cuts." The explanations will be hilarious.

Notice that they make cuts to education first, cuts that affect Americans, while making no mention of turning off the freebies for illegal aliens? They are quick to punish the productive rather than the freeloaders.

Like any drug addict Kalifornia will have to hit rock bottom before they get better. I hope to God that we can keep the feds from bailing them out!

>> services for the elderly and frail

OK, I know what elderly is... but what is the official criteria that gets one declared “frail”?

Too drunk to go to work? Chronic Laziness Syndrome? WTF?

Stop all payments to illegals, cut pay by 25% of all management bureaucrats, begin offshore drilling and reduce union pensions and benefits. Unfortunately for CA, it'll never happen.

But if we need more money, we can raise the tax rates, but if we raise the tax rates we will get less money, but if we get less money then we will need more money, but if we need more money we can raise the tax rates, but if we raise the tax rates we will get less money, but if we get less money then we will need more money, but if we need more money we can raise the tax rates,

Error.
Flaw.
Imperfection.
Must sterilize.

Plop!

California tax revenue plummets in July, raising fear of trigger cuts
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

They might as well write off the revenues now. This is only the beginning of the revenue shortfalls. Its gonna get way way worse.

Something tells me these “trigger cuts” are a joke...not nearly big enough cuts to amount to anything worth talking about.

When you look at the details, the category “other revenue” is where 80% of the shortfall originates.

What were they thinking? To be off $419 million? Was it hope and prayer? Kicking the can down the road, state style.

Unfortunately, the road is very close to the cliff edge for CA.

02/2009: California votes to increase taxes.
08/2011: California tax revenue drops ‘unexpectedly.’

Unexpectedly, that is, unless you’ve studied US fiscal history at all. Increasing taxes beyond a certain level always produces a reduction in tax revenue.

surprise, surprise, surprise

And you mean to tell me that losing up to 7 school days in some districts is the end of the world? Surely there has to be enough fluff in the schedule that core curriculum need not suffer.
