The problems facing California are due to the lack of regulation and the free reign given to business by Republicans. To now blame the state of California for a recession caused by greed is not only disingenuous, but completely illogical.

Bart there are too many regulations and fees, not lack of regulations.

They want to address the problem now, because it is
an election year?

Once the election is over the attention given to
California's employment crisis will be over too.

What caused the price of electricity to sky rocket a few years back?
What caused the housing crisis?(not just a state problem, obviously)
Laws and regulations exist, because so many will operate amorally or with poor ethical values (from my perspective).
I agree that there is a morass of bureaucracy, but it often exists to protect the status quo (that is not always a good thing). True change is not just to decrease regulations, but to make better regulations. To allow all business to operate willy nilly is not a good plan. Unfortunately, there are too many Bernie Madoffs.

Bart, I can't answer why the price of electricity sky rocketed.
But I can give you an answer to part of the housing crisis, lenders were mandated to give loans to anyone without proof of income. Stated income loans, I could have went to a lender and said I make 200k a year, the checks and balances that were in place before were taken away. I would not have had to prove it. Demand for housing rose as it was easy to get money, price of housing skyrocketed. When these loans were not being paid back, the bubble burst, the banks had to foreclose, losing a lot money, value of homes dropped. Builders went away as did jobs.
I agree with your statement, True change is not just to decrease regulations, but to make BETTER regulations.

My motto: bad regulation out, good regulation in, is the way to get America going again.
We received a ton of bad regulation from the privous adminstration. It's going to take more than half a term to get our problems fixed. Keep the faith in hope, people!

I'm going to hit you with the truth: We will never be #1 again, education is at #33 in the world, but saying we're #11 (overall) is not in our best interest either.

We have an opportunity right in front of our face. Oil will be gone with the current generation. We will never be able to generate enough energy with some amazing invention. We need to look into the past on this one: Wind, water, solar energy will be the driving force for the entire human race. What an economy should be built upon!

Now, take this to heart:

One 'first world' human consumes the amount of 30 'third world" humans. We are all humans and treating the world like only the 1st people get clean water is wrong. It's wrong in Christianity, Islam, and Judaism. Consumerism is what Bush demanded from us after 9/11. It only saved our economy for the short term. We need a new economic system, one based on Roosevelt's 2nd Bill of Rights. Education needs to be reformed, but for-profit, private charter schools are not the answer.
I went to a charter school and even though I got a 3.8 GPA when I graduated, my previous year was a 2.2. Trust me, those underpaid teachers with over 100 students each, don't care if you get into college or trade school. I was encourage then go to a for-profit college called, Brooks College. It went under and their accreditation was dropped within a year. Luckily, I did go to a local college and chucked everything from high school into the mental trash, as advised by my wiser older brother. Graduation soon with a BA in Computer Science.

The only thing republicans will do in congress the next two years will be too impede, impeach, and defeat any and all jobs bills. They want us like this for years to vote republicans in again. Fear is used artfully by republicans. Don't let this fear control your vote.

McClintok is a carpet bagger. He has no business being our represtative. He should go back to Southere Cal.
