    Yeah, they already have the new and higher taxes the USMB socialists think Texas should have, and where has it gotten them?

    Well the Texas dream is in as bad or worse position. But as soon as Weed become legal, they will have so much money they won't know what to do with it. Probably buy the State of Texas.

    Why shouldn't the places with the most Mexicans have the economy of Mexico?

    Texas deficit might be as high as $25B, but that's a 2 year period.

    Big fucking surprise that Obamanomics and the failed ideas of Keynes, FDR and Krugman are hurting Texas.

    The State legislature is just a couple of votes short of a 2/3 Democratic majority and has been for years. Now it has a Governor who is a Democrat. I'll bet money that the Dems will convince the majority of people in California that taxes must be raised even though the State has some of the highest taxes in the country. They will convince the people that they will make major cuts too (that won't happen). There are a lot of stupid people in the State and the Democrats never met a tax they didn't like.

    And yet our deficit per capita is still better than Texas....

    And we are significantly wealthier. And while everybody on earth wants to live here almost nobody wants to live in wyoming, or tejas, or Utah.

    And guess what? The oval office is using CA as a template role model to follow.

    Yes, it has to be a state where the prior governor was a republican who ran it into bankruptcy, why just like the United States.

    We inherited a $25.4 budget deficit from a Returd Governor Arnie, just like the trillions of debt Bush left the United States & Obama to clean up.

    Tell us again why we should elect you big spenders.
