    California is running a surplus... just a year or two after Jerry Brown got in there. It's a fact whether you believe the NY Times or whether you choose to live in fairy fantasy land.

    If you want to say he's taking credit for past policies that are just now taking effect... be my guest and prove it. I'm all ears. But if you are going to just sit back and play refuter-man and deny the facts that California is ****ting in tall cotton today compared to two years ago, you are just lying to yourself and you can ride that sinking bullship all the way down. I got the facts on my side and I linked to a credible source. Sorry if these things burst your ideological bubble and hurt your feelings.


    Hey, if you want to try and sell your fantasy to world, have at it. I live in California, I've been a business owner in California for over 30 years. Liberal/Progressives have screwed this state. You have zero facts on your side, only propoganda.

    You not even aware that Jerry Brown signed the legislation that confiscated the Community Redevelopment funds from cities around California.

    Since you have nothing but a rediculous article from the New York Times to back up your failed conclusions, I might suggest gathering some better proof, because at this time, you've offered nothing.

    I've offered nothing? NY Times is nothing but your rather obscure link is the cats ass I suppose.

    Simple question for you... is there or is there not a surplus in California?

    I'll help you out... unless you find all these sources objectionable as well:



    If you still consider these sources inadequate... perhaps you can top it with a blog or something like that in your favor.

    There is no surplus. The surplus is a joke. Brown's budget is nothing but smoke and mirrors that requires money taken from cites and counties to balance. There are deferred payments to schools, deferred payments to CalWorks, and to CalPers, the public employee union. In addition, some of the increased revenue is the result of actions taken in preparation for the massive tax increase Brown pushed through, resulting in one time gains.

    Follow this link. While it's an opinion piece, spend some time on google to confirm the facts in the article.

    What taxpayers should know about Gov. Brown's budget: Opinion - Press-Telegram

    First, the 2013-14 proposed budget would spend more than any other budget in California history. This is true even as it relates to the general fund portion of the budget which doesn't include special funds or federal revenues. In fact, the general fund budget at $97.7 billion is actually $104 billion if previous realignment dollars are included. (The "realignment funds" are simply general fund dollars sent to local governments for the purpose of paying for programs - like corrections - that were previously the responsibility of the state.) The general fund budget is once again above 2007-2008 levels - the highest ever in state

    Revised California Budget Surplus May Not Last Long – Money Talks

    Deferred payments to California schools are also taking up a substantial portion of the added revenues, which exceeded expectations around tax day. Analysts have parsed the one-time revenues to uncertainty at the federal level, which prompted many high income earners to shift realization of assets, including capital gains into 2012.

    Bottom line? You think what you want to think. Leave facts to those who are actually involved in dealing with them where the impact is personal.

    Good afternoon, ocean515.

    It's much the same as all the whining we hear when a proposed increase in spending is whittled down a bit, and then ballyhooed as an unbearable cut! As an example, instead of getting ten percent more next year, they only get to spend an increase of nine percent more! No wonder our debt is closing in on $ 17 trillion! :

    Hi Polgara

    Base line budgeting is the bane of governments throughout the United States.

    It amazes me how many people are taken in by the sham of it. In California, the teachers unions were able to put through a Constitutional Amendment that requires 40% of the state budget be spent on education. This amount is not dependent on the number of students in public education.

    40% of every dollar in additional revenue must be spent on education. With the unfunded portion of public employee benefits reaching $500 billion, the possibility of real surpluses in California is zero.

    Of course, then there is our high speed rail system Governor Brown is determined to build...

    Well, it's the highest mayoral salary in the country but that's just his salary.

    Most of his day to day life is subsidized by the city's tax payers.

    It's almost hard to imagine where he spent any of that money.

    Gotcha...

    Bloomberg Businessweek, Rupert Murdoch's Wall Street Journal, CNN Money and The Atlantic are not credible enough sources for you because a politically partisan opinion piece says otherwise. Too... damn... funny.

    And speaking of funny:

    LOL.

    The joke is only on you, and others like you, who belief the pap coming from Sacramento.

    Care to refute any of the points made about the budget, deferred spending, confiscation of funds from cities and counties?

    So far, you've avoided any comment about those facts, yet cling to the fantasy of Brown and his Progressive cabal actually doing anything about the economics of California.

    That, my friend, is Comedy Hall of Fame.
