    Once again, a struggling economy has dropped state revenues through the floor, presenting California with about a $20 billion deficit for fiscal year 2010-11. But after solving a $17 billion deficit in 2008 and a $60 billion one in 2009, the governor and legislature are running out of things to cut.

    Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's office is predicting severe budget cuts in the next fiscal year to offset a $20 billion plus expected deficit.

    On Friday, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger will kick off the latest budget season with the release of the May revise, an annual event in Sacramento where the governor adjusts his January budget proposal to reflect tax receipts from April. Schwarzenegger warned in January that "tough times still lie ahead," but there was hope that the economy would rebound enough to avoid more severe cuts.

    It never materialized.

    Now, the Capitol community and anyone who relies on state services are bracing for a near-apocalyptic budget plan from the governor. And while his office isn't releasing any early details, it's not offering any reassurances either.

    "We had a $20 billion problem in January. The Legislature acted on about $1 billion of that problem. So, we still have a lot to solve," said gubernatorial press secretary Aaron McLear, "and it will require some really terrible cuts because the governor is not going to propose raising taxes."

    Schwarzenegger's budget proposal is expected to include monumental cuts to social programs and other state services, but it is only a proposal. The legislature is ultimately tasked with writing the budget – the governor merely has the power to veto all or part of it.

    Slash it to the bloody bone baby, slash it to the bone!

    And just who should brace for this terrible cut? The people who work hard for a living and are responsible for themselves. Or do you mean everyone who has a hand in the pot sucking of the state like a leach?

    I'll just brace for the give me more, give it to me free, give it to me now rioting and looting.

    If CA had just limited the growth of government spending to inflation adjusted for population growth, we'd have a surplus. The government grew faster than that for no other reason than greed.

    The state should reduce employment by at least 10%, enact tiered pay cuts ranging from 5 to 20%, freeze pay and hiring, and restructure pensions replacing them with 401K style plans.

    You can't possibly be this stupid. The idiots on the streets asking for a free ride are usually the homeless white people. Mexicans are always out there ready to work, to make sure you don't pay $10 for your strawberries, and can get a head of lettuce for under a dollar. They are the ones who do the grunge work that is keeping this economy from the brink. The data proves that they give more to the economy than they use from public services. They pay taxes and don't get a refund. Their checks boost Social Security 7 billion per year, and they'll never even get to use it. SO get your facts straight.

    They work harder than most Americans have every worked. In Yuma Arizona, the lettuce farmers cant get anyone BUT Mexicans to do the difficult task of harvesting the lettuce crops, and no, it isn't because of cheap labor either. They do it and it pays about $15/hr, but AMericans are tooo fucking lazy to do it.

    And I'm assuming you have data to back up all that you claim. If so please provide a link with this data so I can provde you with plenty of links that show how much these people are costing us in education, health, and our prison system, especially in California. Then we can have a real debate.

    Hi Dart:

    No. Syrenn is right and Dart is the real idiot :)cuckoo:)!

    If Dart were not an IDIOT, then perhaps he could read my recent Topic (here) explaining how the white people are being 'displaced' from JOBS by the 20 to 30 MILLION goddamned Illegal Alien Foreign Nationals running around loose EVERYWHERE. Unscrupulous American Employers are 'hiring' the goddamned Illegal Alien Foreign Nationals to undercut the competition, but American Workers are the casualties that end up living in Tent Cities and on the streets.

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QDLDLr7Ml_o"]This Is Where The Displaced American Workers Live[/ame]

    We are not talking about "Mexicans" you idiot! We are talking about the difference between coming to the USA 'legally' through the front door 'and' coming here "ILLEGALLY" through the back door. Dart is too damn STUPID to understand the difference between coming out of the bank with money 'legally' and ILLEGALLY!!!! BTW, Illegal Alien Foreign Nationals come to the USA ILLEGALLY from all over the earth and NOT just from Mexico ...

    Nobody can be this STUPID!!! Illegal Aliens take JOBS from real Americans and take bread out of the mouths of real American children! The USA does not have enough JOBS for Americans, but this Dart IDIOT :)cuckoo:) is worrying about the citizens of other countries over the interests of real Americans!!!

    Listen here you Dartman IDIOT: Illegal Aliens kill 25 real U.S. Citizens EVERY DAY right here in America (12 by murder). That means your goddamned Illegal Aliens kill 10,000 real U.S. Citizens EVERY YEAR, so that 'your' unscrupulous U.S. Employers can have their cheap Illegal Alien labor pool!!!! Allowing Illegal Aliens to steal JOBS from U.S. Workers lowers the wages of EVERYONE in the local job market, which lowers the tax base and destroys the local consumer base for goods and services. The STUPID idiots in California are suffering from severe budget deficits, because American Workers have been displaced from JOBS by your goddamned Illegal Aliens!!! If the people in California are THAT STUPID and are willing to allow Americans to be 'displaced' out of the local JOB markets to live in Tent Cities, then California can drown in a sea of DEBT and slide off into the Pacific Ocean. BTW, the death of each and every U.S. Citizen by 'your' Illegal Alien Foreign Nationals will hang over YOUR HEAD forever and ever, because YOU continue pandering to the Open Border Lobby and the unscrupulous U.S. Employers making a buck off of the Illegal Alien Labor Trade.

    Nobody can be THIS STUPID!!! Illegal Aliens work many times for less than half the price of real U.S. Citizens. Illegal Aliens running loose in any job market lower the wages of EVERYONE doing the same job! Masons in my area made 24 dollars per hour some 5 years ago, but now the few jobs around pay 14 dollars per hour. Do you know why? I do! There is a long line of Illegal Aliens willing to work for 10 dollars per hour and any American that wants a mason job must compete with 10 to 20 Illegal Aliens living in one house. The idea that a massive Illegal Alien Labor Pool helps the local tax base is STUPID :)cuckoo:).

    Guess what? Displaced Americans cannot pay taxes to support the local schools! Displaced Americans cannot make their house payments and end up in bankruptcy! Too many displaced Americans in your neighborhood means nobody can make a good offer on your house, which means home prices go SOUTH and everyone in the neighborhood ends up with houses under water (mortgage amount greater than home value). However, complete IDIOTS like Dart :)confused:) have no idea about what I am even talking about. They think that 20 to 30 MORE goddamned Illegal Aliens in the local Illegal Labor Pool is good news for everyone :)cuckoo:) ...

    Right here is where Dartman proves himself to be a complete and utter FOOL!!!! Dart is talking about Illegal Alien Foreign Nationals (citizens of other countries) making contributions to the Social Security System using Social Security Numbers stolen from real U.S. Citizens! The Illegal Alien broke the law by:

    1. Entering the USA Illegally.
    2. Forging Documentation to steal a JOB from an American.
    3. Signing Employment Documentation using the forged Documentation.
    4. Cashing the check using forged Documentation.
    5. Transferring Illegal Funds across state lines using forged Documentation.

    Dart is endorsing the breaking of ALL of our Laws, so that some unscrupulous U.S. Employer can undercut the competition using Illegal Aliens from his Cheap Illegal Alien Labor Pool!!! The fact that 25 US Citizens are killed by his Illegal Aliens does not even become part of the equation, because all Dart is worrying about is helping people obtain Illegal Profits from the Illegal Alien Slave Trade.

    Dart is for rewarding bank robbers with ILLEGAL money, so long as they work hard! This idiot will never know the difference between 'legal' and 'ILLEGAL' ...

    That is because the unscrupulous employer has already 'displaced' the local American Workers from the local job market by paying such LOW WAGES to Illegal Aliens! Once the local employers prove to everyone that hiring Illegal Aliens is a good thing, then the Americans must move to other areas where the Govt 'is' enforcing the Immigration and Employment Laws.

    We have 20 MILLION Americans looking for a JOB and Dart really believes that Americans would rather starve than take a $15.00 per hour JOB. No sir. The local farmers are hooked on the cheap Illegal Labor and nobody is enforcing the Laws 'and' Illegal Profits come easy when Govt continues looking the other way ...

    GL,

    Terral

    Couldn't agree more.

    Hope he comes up with a few links.

    I'd be very interested to read how much the illegals are doing for us as opposed to how much they are costing us.

    Don't think it even comes close.

    This is just the tip of the iceberg. State governments across the country are broke.
