Cal will not go broke, the true corp big power brokers and financiers will not allow it .. they just want to bleed it, then realign, larger corp profits the end result .. who was that earlier Barron of Wall Street, with the Mantra of buying opportunities when there is blood in the streets
Public Employee's are a small part of the equation and are being scape goated .. keep in mind that in generl the public employees receive salaries allowing for a marginal lower middle class existence
How should we respond to those who say California is already broke?
While I do not agree with your premise that "Public Employee's are a small part of the" problem, I do agree that other factors should not be discounted. For example, since the revolution free-spending out-of-control politicians have created a voting majority of dangerous tax eaters and taxpayer supported Thug people.
The increasingly impoverished minority of Californians who pay taxes - primarily ordinary worker *("middle")* class Californians - can no longer afford to continue funding both fat-cat public employees along with the politicians' dangerous tax eaters and their shock-troops, the Thug people. The money is simply not there.
