California treasurer warns of IOUs, if no cuts

BERKELEY, Calif.- State Treasurer Bill Lockyer says California could be
forced to issue IOUs as early as April or May if state lawmakers don't cut
state spending soon.

Lockyer, a Democrat, said Saturday that California could run short of cash
as it faces a $25.4 billion deficit through the end of June 2012, including
an $8.2 billion gap in the fiscal year that ends in July.

He says if the Legislature fails to address what he termed a "substantial
shortfall," California will run out of cash to pay the bills.

Gov. Jerry Brown has proposed $12.5 billion in cuts and borrowing, and wants
to ask voters to extend a series of temporary taxes in June.

Brown spokeswoman Elizabeth Ashford said Lockyer's comments underscore the
urgency of Brown's March budget deadline.

HOLY F****!!!!!! And that dip sheot Arnold talked all that sheot about Arizona. These idiots are the reason California is in DEBT!! IS citizens are spending more money on these illegal aliens, then they are their own children. IF you vote for Obama, prepare to see taxes rise and medical bills as well, because we will all be supporting illegal aliens under Obama's watch.

This is a Good Way to Pay Back the bUNITED STATES TAXPAYERS.

When will the madness Stop! We need to Protect these illegal immigrants! SO let make ICE do their JOB and DEPORT all these poor illegal immigrants back to whatever country they came FROM. CONFISCATE ALL their WORLDLY POSSESSIONS and Sale their Possessions at Public Auction and use the Money to Help Pay for Social sevices for Legal Immigrants and United States Citizens. Deport more of these poor illegal immigrants Back to their Homeland Broke. That way it will discourage them to Stay at their Homeland, People not to come to United States without PROPER PAPERS. Illegal immigrants ARE costing United States Taxpayers BILLIONS of Dollars. People who support illegal immigrants Need to support these people in their own Homeland.

It is true uninsured illegal aliens probably contribute to the cost of operating Government hospitals. The Government then passes those costs on to the hard working taxpaying minority. Like most other information the controlled "news" disseminates to the American people, that fact, by itself, is misleading.

Ever since the revolution, revolutionary politicians, taxpayer funded agenda driven judges, and the high paid revolutionary intelligentsia element that has taken control of taxpayer funded Government institutions of higher learning have promoted ever higher amounts of hard earned taxpayer money being given to the Thug community, ostensibly to keep them quiet and so that they will behave themselves.

This 60s 70s era program has proven itself to be an utter failure. Rather than behave themselves, the Thug people have become increasingly dangerous to the extent that no one is safe anywhere. Because farmers are competing with revolutionary Government politicians and judges, the Thug people refuse to engage in productive labor of the type their God given talents enable them to do. After all, why should the Thug people preform labor when revolutionary Government pays this fast breeding population more to do nothing?

it is true that our system has become a mess since the revolution. Unlike the taxpayer supported Thug people, most of the Mexican and Central American peasant immigrant class are hard workers who contribute to the economic well being of the nation.

It is time we end falling into the trap that revolutionary politicians have set for us by demonizing those who are willing workers. The current hospital cost burden that is currently being paid by the hard working taxpaying minority can be easily cured by booting the Thug people off the taxpayer welfare rolls, which includes all the taxpayer funded revolutionary Government programs, including the providing of "free" hospital and medical care for them.
