The Best and Worst Run States in America: A Survey of All 50
> Debt per capita:$3,990 (20th highest)
> Budget deficit: 27.8%(3rd largest)
> Unemployment: 10.5%(2nd highest)
> Median household income:$58,328 (11th highest)
> Pct. below poverty line: 17.0%(18th highest)
For the third year in a row, California is the worst-run state in America. California faced a nearly $24 billion in budget shortfall in fiscal 2012, including a mid-year shortfall of $930 million and $8.2 billion carried over from the year before. California carries an A credit rating from Standard & Poors, and an A1 from Moodys both worse than any other state except for Illinois. Explaining its rating, Moodys pointed to the states history of one-time solutions to resolve its budgetary gaps. It also noted the states highly volatile revenue structure, due to its over reliance on wealthy taxpayers. The Golden State was also among the worst states in the nation for educational attainment, health coverage, and unemployment.

California has a budget surplus, thanks to cost cutting AND increased revenues. The Democrats deserve our congratulations.
The surplus is "between $1.2 billion, projected by Gov. Jerry Brown, and $4.4 billion, the estimate of the Legislatures independent financial analyst. The surplus comes barely three years after the state was facing a deficit of close to $60 billion."
No thanks are due to the repub philanderer, Arnold, who left a mess that Jerry Brown had to overcome.
Dems cleaning up a repub mess-- sound familiar?

Vagrants, derelicts and dangerous parolees are hanging around California's cities and towns due to the state governemnt "realignment" program.
California State Association of Counties Responds to PPIC Report Regarding AB 109, Public Safety Realignment
"counties are concerned about the increase in property crimes in the past two years and we need more comprehensive data and analysis to fully understand that and find ways to address it."
the moral of the story is......buy a gun and be prepared to defend yourself.
The state government has released tens of thousands of folks who should be in prison, or in a mental insitution. There are no jobs for these folks even if they could hold a job.

It is mighty conservative of you to finally admit the "Old Gipper" screwed things up big time in California by shutting down the mental institutions before he went on to phack up the rest of America...
