Let's see 16 billion deficit in a 2 trillion dollar GDP economy.

16 Billion / 2 Trillion = 0.8%

The deficit seems like a large number but it is actually very small in comparison to the total size of California's economy. It is a problem and it will need to be balanced eventually but it is not the end of the world.

Top two states

California: 2,209,000
Texas: 1,041,000

And these stats were before Gov Moonbeam took the fantasy land throne....
Those numbers are way low, they are from 2000. Today there are at least 3 million illegals plus their offspring. Besides the pandering of Moonbeam and his cronies, we have gotten an influx from Arizona due to their toughening stance. There may have been a slight decrease due to the recession as a few have gone home, but this is not certain, and if and when the economy improves, many of them will be coming back. At home they actually have to work for what they get, and all those sweet free bennies payed for by the US taxpayer will be drawing them back again.

Well, the problem is unfunded mandates. The federal government requires the states to act yet provides no funding.

Very small? Left out was a little item that is actually not so small, in fact it is looming huge. A little something called a $500 billion unfunded public employees pension deficet. Just how the hell are the citizens going to pay for this mess? Answer, they cannot, it is impossible. That means major revisions and sharp cuts in both present and future pension benefits. The thing is, just suggest such a thing and the public employees unions will go absolutely ballistic, and since the unions virtually control every single Democratic elected state official, reform will go nowhere, and we will be right back at square one, with no solution.

Not likely there is any decline at all -- or how are illegals doing so much better than anyone else that they have so much money after the living expenses that they can ship billions of dollars out every month? Of course free everything helps them immensely -- they have few living expenses since the taxpayers must provide them everything they want and need.

I know you just want any reason to hate California, but come on...
I gather you didn't actually read the content of the link I provided.

Hate is a pretty strong word. What I do feel is pity for the American citizens who are being squeezed out of their state because of the illegal population. Cutting more programs will force more people (citizens) to leave, making room for more illegals. I'm angry at the US government for coddling illegals and their documented offspring born in the US, at the expense of the taxpayer and treating American citizens as second class citizens. It's the citizens that are going to feel the cuts, not the illegals.

Viva Mexifornia.

WOW... I see someone brings common sense perspective to the party. Shocking! I think that may be against the TOS...
