    Seems like a plan. What's the big objection?

    Here in Ohio, things are almost as bad. Kasich seems to think he can avoid cutting services and raising taxes if he privatizes enough.

    I think Brown is being more honest.

    It's not a bad start, although I don't agree with sparing K-12 education. They already get more money than they need to educate kids. Nobody should be spared.

    Looks like the cuts were not big enough... Looks like he depends on raising taxes to fix over half of the deficit.

    The governor of the highest taxed state in the country wants to keep raising taxes.

    If Republicans don't block this, they're not doing their job.

    Califorinia already has a 9.5%+ state tax. Its way too high to attract business. Without new jobs, more wealth will not be created and tax revenue will continue to plummet.

    The schools or services are no better than any of the lowest taxed states in the country.

    But let's talk about those obscene public employee pensions which are breaking the backs of taxpayers, such as the one Wry Catcher collects.

    Run the prisons like they do in Texas for starters.

    Cut off the free education and healthcare for illegals.

    Oops. Judges nobody elected told California they can't do that.

    Non English students have to attend English classes and pay tuition. They cannot attend public schools until they can pass an English proficiency test. No more ESL teachers.

    No more sanctuary cities.

    Raise property taxes and sales taxes. It has to hurt, but California is so deep in debt, they have to take drastic steps.

    Cut the nutritional program for schools. The state has to fund part of that as well. Parents can get up and pack a lunch.

    Privatize the Sanitation department to hire more people.

    Place heavy fines on companies that hire illegals.

    Start deporting illegals.
