Beez, You ask as if the American people have any say in the matter.
California faces the question that all the states and even the country as a whole must answer to. Do legislatures cut spending, or do they raise
I think it is obvious that this question has been answered. Raise revenue, IE, raise taxes. They really have no choice. Americans, for better or for
worse, aren't willing to cut programs. Neither are legislators, as they use programs as political capital or constituent bribery.
What should California do? I'm a New Englander who lived in NorCal for 6 years. I could never figure Californians out.
They should do whatever
they believe is in their best interest. That being said, the slope is so slippery and steep at this point, that what ends up being in their best
interest will likely be drastic measures. Best of luck to them.
