The GOP is indeed in very big trouble. With minorities being a larger and larger portion of the electorate they can't win by continuing to alienating them. The GOP praised the racist Arizona Immigration law as a model for the nation. Alienating women with ignorant comments about rape and birth control also was very damaging. The GOP either quits the racist and sexist rhetoric or they're doomed.

First they must stop blaming the media for their losses. Then they must look in the mirror and reassess their values which takes gall.

The schools already get plenty of money from lottery tickets sales, of which the funds are "supposed to" go to schools.

I do struggle comprehending what some post around here... just tell me this was just a typo.

I haven't read it all but it looks like California's revised deficit is $15.7 Billion. Their debt is currently around 382 Billion. Currently that is a debt to GDP ratio of 18.7%.

Maybe this will list some of the major contributors to the deficit (FYI this thing is 94 pages long).

From my skimming it looks like the biggest contributors are as follows:
-Education--Prop 98 funding increases
-Medi-Cal
-Natural Resources
-Labor and Workforce Development
-Corrections

Growth is forecasted but very slow growth. So...I don't know if this will bolster anyones argument but here is the link for further review.

Let us stick with federal revenue and spending. Hence, answer my question accordingly, if you must choose to respond to it.

If the GOP wants to remain in business, they'd better ditch the Tea Party, or they can kiss the entire country good-bye.
