A Special Message To The People of California from the Rest of America
But, now in 2010 the state faces difficulties that it has never faced before and one wonders if the people of the state truly understand what is going on in their economy. The back of the engine that has fueled the California economy is now broken, housing. As values continue to plummet and the winds out of Washington continue to attack home ownership one must wonder after Tuesday’s state elections what the people of California are smoking. Already I can hear your response to that, but seriously what in God’s name are they thinking electing an array of left wing radicals to run the state? Do they actually think that they are the Federal Reserve and can print their way out of the massive debt they have? It seems so.
What happened in Tuesdays elections was not only a message to Washington and the White House, but it was also a wakeup call to the people of California. The message was that the rest of America is not going to bail your asses out with Federal stimulus money that will put our children and grandchildren even further in debt. This new congress won’t allow it. Once Sacramento runs out of options they will finally be forced to break out their budget cutting pens and slash the bloated union contracts and unfunded liabilities that now weigh on the state like a dozen elephants.
So, as the rest of the country turns bright red, what are you going to do Governor-Elect Jerry Brown? Lazy economic policies of tax and spend wont get you out of this one, this time. It may be time to break out your Econ 101 book and join the rest of the country in saving it, rather than destroying it.
