Who didn't know this wasn't going to happen. After Barack Benghazi starts taxing the rich, poor, and in between, the people that have the means will leave the country. Only the poor who can't pay taxes will be left and Obamacare will go unfunded not to mention social security and public union pensions. Then we will see how happy the morons that elected Obama are when they can't even get their trash picked up.

Maybe they are moving to Benghazi to join a fictitious and very infamous angry mob.

California gives $80 billion a year to other states every year through federal redistribution of income. Most of the recipients are red states.

California's budget shortfall is about $80 billion every year.

What is with all this tax talk? Obama has had the lowest taxes than any other president in history. Its time to pay the piper.

Don't worry about California. We aren't as stupid as it appears to other Americans with an IQ above that of a box of sea shells.

We enticed Millions of uneducated, uncivilized peasants to settle in Calif illegally so they could be forced to fund the wildly out of reason Pensions that Democrats traded for campaign support.

Of course, most all middle class Calif families will be forced to relocate to sanely managed States. Who cares if the diabolical Calif. UnionCrat politicians can force the remaining illegal alien slave population to support their Union Masters families in grand style.

Anyways, California is still a net contributor to the Federal US. California = Germany
Red states = Greece

Thats just the truth of the matter. Still I rise.

California should break off from America and keep the $50 Billion for our own situation. We already owe over $700 BILLION in State Debt and hundreds of Billions in unfunded Pension bonanzas.

Having slowly ruined California, some residents have decided to jump ship, and spread their wisdom and keen political ideals.....

Its time to look at facts, little man.

California is a net contributor, AKA Germany.

States like Mississippi, North Dakota, West Virginia, are moochers.

All that media is about race. Not fact. Time to pay the piper kid

Like I said 19042 times already in this thread. California's budget problems are because of all the support and subsidizing they do for poorer states.

Federalism is the problem. Not California.
