All wrong. The fix is simple. Stop spending money you don't have. Stop the bond merry-go-round. Close the public school system down. Stop voting for socialist Democrats. Stop providing services to illegal aliens, and get the unions out government offices.

I think we need to vote for Jerry Browns tax increase in November. We need strong schools and a motivated state work force. In other countries the gas tax reflects the true cost of driving on the roads and to some degree the degradation of the air, increasing the state gas tax little by little would make people drive less and buy cars that get better gas mileage.

A good way to start dealing with the budget deficit is to kill high speed rail, which numerous impartial observers like the state auditor, the LAO and UC Berkeley's ITS have faulted.
Money wasted on high speed rail could be better spend on deficit reduction. We should be given another chance to vote on high speed rail because the project now under discussion is not the project voters approved in 2008. Since HSR is not on the ballot, I plan to send a message of Governor Moonbeam by voting "NO" on his tax increases.
