Skip to comments.Brown's Countdown, Day 40: Democrats to pare back some of Brown's budget cuts

The Assembly Budget Committee plans to approve much of Gov. Jerry Brown's budget today, but it will reject some of his most controversial cuts to social service and health programs, according to a document released Thursday by the committee.
In particular, Assembly Democrats will not eliminate welfare aid for children after a four-year time limit, and they plan to cut grants by 5 percent rather than 13 percent. They will, however, impose a four-year time cap for adults proposed by Brown.
As Senate Democrats did Wednesday, Assembly Democrats will reject Brown's proposal to cap doctor visits and prescription drugs for Medi-Cal patients. They will also reject Brown's plan to eliminate Adult Day Health Care.
Assembly Democrats will reject Brown proposals to reduce In-Home Supportive Services hours by 12 percent and eliminate pay for cleaning and cooking provided by those who live with their IHSS clients, typically relatives. They will agree to require IHSS recipients to obtain medical certification.
To replace the savings, Assembly Democrats will drop the reserve fund from $1 billion to $300 million.

The day that California completely financially implodes upon itself is fast approaching and I, for one, will rejoice...they brought it upon themselves. =.=
Democrats buy votes through welfare.
And by sweetheart deals with public sector unions. It’s nothing more than a money laundering scheme. Steal from the taxpayers, give to the unions then send a portion back to the democrat election fund.
I wonder if the reserve fund actually exists - or is it an IOU is a file cabinet somewhere?
Brown knew that these cuts would never fly. He just made the gesture in order to say, “See. I tried.” It’s all smoke and mirrors while they go forward with their agenda.
