No problem; just increase tax rates/sarc.
and even though voters passed a Constitutional amendment to stop paying lawmakers if the budget is not balanced, they will still get paid.
It will be “deemed” balanced I guess.
Now look what Apple computer has done.
As a life-long Californian, I am reveling in the financial trouble Bastard Brown is in, because he’s the one who set the wheels in motion for this disaster when he was Boy Governor thirty years ago. As the campaign signs used to say “If It’s Brown, Flush It!” I hope the SOB has a heart attack and dies in office. He’s the most worthless POS to ever draw a breath. Now, ask me what I really think.
They are going to squeeze blood from the turnips, huh?
California is run by idiots.
The more they demand, the less they get and the more long term damage to California’s businesses/tax base is done. Businesses and wealth people that leave the state leave for good to put down roots somewhere else that doesn’t want to punish them for being productive and good citizens.
They don’t understand the people have to have an “income” in order to pay “income taxes.”
Well, THAT was unforeseeable and unexpected.
Good news. The CA government must be deprived of income. What we need to see is some real pain. Then, they will be like a Heroin addict going through withdrawal. They must hit rock bottom before they can admit to a problem and begin to take the steps to cure their addiction. And Uncle Sam cannot be the enabler by feeding the addiction.
The Leftist billionaires and mega millionaires need to feel some pain and blowback from the restless underclasses and union parasite classes. What we need to see a fracture of the Leftist coalition; a war between the union parasites, the enviros, welfare parasites and the Leftist moguls. After they have destroyed each other, the entrepreneurs and investors can come in and carpet bag the state.
I thought the tax from the Facebook IPO was going to save the day ... apparently Californicate is not going to get 5 or 6 billion on a 5 billion dollar IPO. Oh well, can probably just raise taxes on movie stars, public employees, unions and any business (that hasn’t left) ... as these will be the only people with any money!
Proving once again what happens when you tax the crap out of something. Duh, Jerry.
So the Detroitification of an entire state proceeds apace....
Brown averred the problem to be a complete paradox, “I don’t understand it!!!??? We keep raising taxes and the revenue keeps going down! This time, we raise taxes to 100% of everyone’s income. And when that doesn’t work, we’ll go to 150%”
The funny thing is, these retards can’t provide a single historical example of socialist policies EVER creating prosperity. And yet they are more unshakable in their beliefs than a Jihadist suicide bomber, (and with more destructive power!)
Better check Steve Jobs’s other pants. :)
Just 6 months ago Brown said we had too much money.
He even signed us up for a brand new entitlement program called the dream act.
My cousin works for a software company in Irvine. The company has its heaquarters in Taiwan. They are pulling up stakes and moving back to Taiwan. My cousin is moving to their operations in Manila.
I remember when Moonbeams was governor the first time. The LA Slimes at that time was leading the charge to push his sorry ass out.
gov brown needs to live within his means.
