Welcome back to indigestion today.
Got a lot I can't -- half a hole but once again California governor Jerry Brown proves logic wrong.
Four months ago we steady state was nine billion dollars in debt now he claims -- sixteen it takes a special guy to make you long for half a hole.
Now -- -- defied logic before know what everybody find work after his nutty right as governor moon -- in the 1970s.
But they became mayor of Oakland a city so bad it's best seen from skylab.
And out here is happening the Titanic that is California State so broke it may ask Greece for alone how to this happen.
What you -- pensions -- of spending and lots of regulations businesses a ball to the state isn't making any money into bureaucrats left behind looted the joint.
You're never Bell, California it's payroll boasted seven figure salaries with its manager Robert Rizzo getting one point five million per year.
They were the kids trashing the candy store -- it's headed well if you're -- keep digging under brown the state spent two point one billion more than expected.
And that new bullet train requires spending 3.5.
Million dollars every single day including -- Days and weekends if it's gonna be done by 2017.
Yeah this is what happens when a junkie gained control of the -- that you never quit their addiction to spending.
Only expand -- it's so all that's left is a deeper hole which now looks like an open grave.
Strong language other aircraft and I'm -- -- -- well you know it's interesting topic in Atlanta I could tell something out poppies need to wipe out these sweetened precious -- California I'm -- I don't you know I thought hey they can't afford -- that's -- -- -- right I did it he did this he did he announce the stuff.
Via YouTube which is an Internet destination.
A thank economic.
I'm gonna Kyle got to find out that I thought that hole and I have come -- since so.
-- got on the one hand you could say well how innovative the governor of California using new media and YouTube to get a message out to the people of California that looks like.
You that the soft lighting in the music is how by the way you're so in -- your children's future is.
Is not to be had here in California.
Well I had a problem like this for what reason I think that and the media should have been allowed to asking questions via doing is something like that on my video is something that is done by -- dictators we don't have to answer to the people.
He's gonna have answer questions eventually but I think that was -- It's a government to do it by it and -- hey -- -- that they did Democrats who control legislature led legislature have resisted.
His cuts he's actually trying to make cuts because he's probably responsible for that and I know that the way to that this state is now what's gonna happen.
Well personally is -- to my couple things that California doesn't have control over the JPMorgan for example does.
And that is it does that control of the holding national economy does not control over trade with Asia which is a big part of its business there.
It does also does not have control of tax receipts there were all by 3.5 billion dollars now I'm not saying -- -- would would brown has done here but.
The legislature and there are budget a part of function cowards and they want Democrats secret that's right and I say about them they won't increase taxes and cut spending in the -- they -- of the -- is taking out the people were -- about this in November.
Not a referendum that's what he should do look the reality is.
You gonna have to cut more spending and you're gonna have to increase taxes is as simple as that anybody -- think you -- -- vote Republican and I'm like that and I'm like that is.
Is that like a thousand that's basically saying I'm calling -- -- cut back doing drugs a little bit.
-- they can't increase taxes anymore of California's 11%.
Tax already friends what's happening.
People and businesses are leaving California they're going to know tax states like Texas.
Last year there was a 1% slide him in the number of jobs that that California created vs.
If people needing jobs will be lost ground they -- the third worst in in the nation.
Texas was the tenth best because there's no state income tax he can't raise the taxes.
They really need to be cutting spending.
But they can't do that -- they can't seem to figure out that they need to cut that there are there lies a problem it's not a tax problem it's a spending problem.
Well -- -- -- to attack -- -- it is a spending problem as well I grant you that California has a very expansion welfare system.
It also has a very expensive.
Did you -- border interdiction program.
It also -- very special police force.
As state police force it is got.
Like it's inexpensive it's expensive because they're controlling detail everything I I think that's -- the sellers about -- we're crazy very early songs -- that are declaring bankruptcy they never met.
And entitlement that they didn't lie okay that's that what the problem is there they spent also two point one billion more.
Then they were supposed to so it is a spending problem as well and now -- -- you have to make cuts.
In public education in addition to increasing the -- -- taxes sales tax.
An additional quarter percent so you know he's in big trouble over there under the -- wanna be out of my outlet and I think that they've been old friend come minor strains state and so by the way PS.
The bullet train -- high speed train that happening.
And just take that off the table as -- some sort of a goodwill gesture.
On his behalf in order -- that bullet trains in and nowhere like.
Better search for -- these -- leaning California go to Texas it is true but can you imagine the bridge there in California is it's a wonderfully beautiful state it's got the ocean.
Can you imagine going from.
Hop stop that little -- -- of being a living on this I grew I grew up in California and it's a really a depressing thing for somebody who was born in California not to be able to afford to live there.
Even the your own neighborhood where I grew up in San detail.
