What Could Possibly Go Wrong?
California legislators are receiving the sprawling poisonous proposed budget the evening before the morning they are expected to vote on it. Of course, they are not going to read the budget proposal before voting. The state of California is one of the ten largest economies on the planet, and yet California's budget is completely hostage to a marginal cabal of Republican anti-tax obstructionist ideologues and smug secretive ineffectual Machine Democrats. Completely preposterous. Conduct this revolting quite properly inspires… revolts.
