An LA radio station published findings that over 9000 former California government employees are getting total retirement benefits of at least $100K per year. This includes many employees who retired at 50 with 90% of their wages, which they hiked up in the last year they worked by doing overtime, etc, plus complete free medical benefits. California ordinary citizens must be happy about that, because although 12% are unemployed because democrat legislators drove many businesses out of the state by creating an anti-business environment, and many are losing their homes, at least they can be comforted by the fact that the people who served them at the DMV for many years are well taken care of. Oops - but CA is tens of billions of dollars in debt. But to keep the trainloads of money going to their current (overpaid) government drones, and former drones, the democrats tried to put a $12.5 billion tax increase on the ballot. Yes, in the midddle of the democrat recession. Recent polling data, in this liberal state, gives the popular response: screw you, it aint gonna happen. It was taken off the June ballot.
