    You're pretending that revenue has never been "lower than expected" after a tax increase. That there will be no change in tax payer behavior after the tax increase. Good luck with that. Like I said before, you have more faith in Moonbeam than Morpheus had in Neo. It's hilarious.

    Get back to me when Brown's magic pixie dust pays off CA's debt and 500B in unfunded liabilities.

    How did that turn out?

    He has proposed a budget based upon a multitude of assumptions, accounting gimmicks, and offsets, meaning he's not counting the inconvenient facts such as 500B in unfunded pension liabilities, existing massive debt, cities going bankrupt, and massive waste/fraud/abuse being committed in the Entitlement System.

    It's always the same with you Religious Fanatics that believe in Government like a God. A liberal politician makes a declaration/proclamation and you believe it, regardless of past failure. Nearly 25% of the population of the state lives in poverty. Each resident of the state represents about 10K in outstanding debt. About 1/3 of CA residents are on welfare. It has the highest sales tax and income tax in the entire country and was voted the worst state to do business in by Chief Executive Magazine

    When Moonbeam pays down the debt and finds a way to cover all those unfunded liabilities let me know. Right now you're propping up a fairy tale and drinking some seriously strong kool-aid. The problem is Brown spiked the punch.



    Really?

    How have those Obama "budgets" turned out genius?

    He tried a lot more than once.

    I was quite a big fan of his back in the 1992 election. All the way back then he was extolling the virtues of keeping money out of elections. There was no internet drives and the like back then so he, at every speech, would give out a 1-800 number for people to call and donate and he wouldn't take small donations from any one donor. This man walks the talk far more than most politicians.

    What does a stimulus passed to pull the our nation outta THE GREAT BUSH RECESSION have to do with a PROPOSED budget?
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    You need a new schtick. The whole "Dodge noted" trolling you do to almost everyone nonstop is played out. Not to mention it doesn't hardly ever seem to apply.

    Ahh the lame blame Bush card again. Haven't seen this tired, cliche laughable dodge about a billion times whenever you clowns can't refute facts.





    Apparently you missed the recent Economic report that places all the blame squarely on Democrats

    New Study Blames Community Reinvestment Act For Mortgage Defaults - Investors.com

    Democrats and the media insist the Community Reinvestment Act, the anti-redlining law beefed up by President Clinton, had nothing to do with the subprime mortgage crisis and recession.

    But a new study by the respected National Bureau of Economic Research finds, "Yes, it did. We find that adherence to that act led to riskier lending by banks."
    Thanks for playing!
