Even before a budget deadline arrives, leaders from both parties are blaming each other - and some Republicans are criticizing their own - for a government shutdown many are treating as inevitable.

Schwarztie had to chop billions out of the budget and part of the surplus came from a one time tax windfall.
.
By the way, the state tax increase can be deducted off of federal taxes so that means a tax revenue loss to the federal government.
.
Obama wants to reduce that deduction which means those rich Silicon Valley types that want to share the wealth will actually have to pay more in taxes, not shift them around.
Not shifting taxes used to be a con idea. Look at the PA property tax for schools, the noisemakers want the burden shifted to the sales tax and off of homeowners. Wait a minute.....didn't the cons used to want to ELIMINATE taxes? Found it interesting that turzai took an 85k dollar 'donation' from a legal firm to prevent any change.

hahahahahahahahaha

Here’s a quick look at what California owes in general obligation bonds, organized by category as of today:

• K-12 education:$31.55 billion

• Clean water and disaster preparation:$13.62 billion

• Transportation and clean air:$12.57 billion

• Higher education:$9.28 billion

• Housing:$2.92 billion

• Other:$1.93 billion

• Stem cell:$1.2 billion

• Children’s hospital:$1.19 billion

Add it all up and the state has just over $74 billion in outstanding general obligation bonds, according to the California Treasurer’s Office. A report issued last October from that office also included an additional $11.33 billion in lease revenue bonds,$1.9 billion in high speed rail bonds, and $7.51 billion in special fund bonds.

But remember that “wall of debt”? That debt came to $26.8 billion as of July 1, which Brown says will be cut to $4.6 billion in four years. There’s also about $10 billion the state Employment Development Department owes to the federal government for unemployment insurance claims paid out during the recent recession.

But never fear, California. You've got Jerry "damn, that's some good sh*t" Brown runnin' the show!

Nice dodge. Now about all those rich California liberals writing off their state taxes on the federal dime?

This is what 50 years of left wing governance will get you. Nice job, democraps!

[Detroit's] problem is that even before bankruptcy was declared, its children were in deep trouble. An astounding 60% of the city's kids live below the poverty line — nearly three times higher than the national rate of child poverty.

What's more, with the city officially broke, Michigan experiencing massive budget cuts, and federal sequestration in full swing, programs needed to provide essential services to poor children — from anti-hunger programs to day care — are in greater jeopardy than ever before.

And while Detroit may be the only major city in America filing for bankruptcy, it is far from the only place where children are living in dire conditions.
