#4 While most other (local) governments in CA had staff-level freezes, the State has been hiring up until a couple months ago, anticipating the voters would stupidly approve those five lying propositions raising taxes. The sheeple actually shot em down overwhelmingly. Things are changing here, for the better, and if the Reps can hold out, this will be a Rahm-type crisis: don't waste it

#5 And if the Big O tries a Fed bailout of the state, there will be a sh*tstorm. I would not put it past him to do something, thinly disguised.

#6 if the Big O tries a Fed bailout of the state, there will be a sh*tstorm. The Big 0 can do no wrong, blame can be shifted to his non-supporters somehow.

#7 He doesn't have to 'bail out' the state, he can simply take them off the hook by having the Federal Gummit assume the state payroll.

Watch it happen!

#8 Hmmm...

Didn't the state Legislature vote themselves a 20% pay raise just last year? Let's toss that into the pot too.
