    I read an article about the deficit/budget and I couldn't help but remember this thread...

    I can already hear them, "oh no, the state was responsible and payed off $7.2 billion of its deficit. Not another fact that challenges our ideology and dogma!"

    Is he the one who decides about spending? I thought that was the overwhelmingly Democratic legislature who did that.

    I'm pretty sure the CA Governor has a line-item veto.

    Yes, it is. I believe that is why the state was in trouble to begin with.

    Actually I believe there was a law put in place in Cali that said there needs to be a supermajority to raise taxes. So revenues basically couldn't increase no matter the policies that they did decide to enact... creating the massive deficit.

    Well California's surplus sure didn't last long. They just spent it all giving the state employees a pay raise.
