Tough sell, Warren. "The central question becomes how the different parties see the role of government, and how to pay for the services citizens demand of government."
The central problem is, again, the size of government. The role of government should be sized to the capacity of it's revenue. California's opportunity to increase revenue by adjusting upward current tax rates or creating new tax streams is practically nil. http://retirementliving.com/RLstate1.html (California competes against both other states and overseas in taxation)
The state doesn't print money, so it has to balance its budget. So, what is the role of government, Warren? And how do you work that into the balanced budget? Is it the competition between the common functions and the uncommon functions of government? Is the issue merely spending money on chasing fraud to save the enormous losses from fraud? Is it only adjusting the payout size and scope of benefits that act as disincentives to work?
I can have questions and I can give answers. But, if the policy maker has questions and no answers then I know the truth. He is waiting to see the outcome of the Prop. 25 vote and the governorship race.

I bet Tony would have met the President of Croatia if Tony's last name was Villarovic, which it ain't.

I beg to differ with Assemblymember Furutani. I strongly encourage a "NO" vote on Proposition 25. The stalemate which he refers is not the fault of one party but rather forced compromise. With the current makeup of the Assembly and State Senate, were this to pass, we will have NO compromise, but simply Democratic produced budgets. As things stand now, my vote is gerrymandered useless (have you seen the map for state senate district 25?) though I believe in process and will VOTE NO ON 25 on Nov. 2. While one provision of the bill is appropriate, legislators losing pay/benefits for each day the budget is late, that ought to happen now, since passing a budget on time is their job and they're not doing it.
