You are right on. The legislature spent money they didn't have and the Governor signed legislation we couldn't afford so now our Reps are forced to make decisions they never wanted to make. Which is why it's no surprise nothing is getting done. Everyone is worried about their re-election instead of the issues. What a bunch of failures. Cut cut cut and then cut some more.

I think that a lack of understand of how our governments work is partly to blame for voters voting in the morons they do. Never saw a bond measure that the voters disliked in my many years of living in CA. What is sad is when the voters finally do vote to make a significant cut, like Prop 187, and the courts decide they know better and throw it out. Our courts are becoming activist courts now and will make law any way they see fit.
