Wait, Illinois has a public employee pension deficit alone of 98 billion dollars, and it has 12 million people.

California has what, 3-4 times the population and is running a surplus?

Where did all this fresh cash come from, when they were drowning in a ginormous deficit a few months ago? What spending cuts have they made? Did a few dozen billionaires recently move there? Have they reduced their welfare recipient population?

I believe the claim pertains to next year's budget, not all of CA's substantial liabilites.
