House of Pain: Detailing Cuts to CA Budget
The bad news just keeps on coming: After last week’s defeat of the budget propositions, which boosted the expected state deficit from $15 billion to over $21 billion, Gov. Schwarzenegger’s office was informed recently that the new deficit figures will be even worse. Thanks to the continuing recession we’re now looking at a $24.3 billion deficit hole that needs closing, and if you believe the Governor and leading legislators that hole will be largely closed on the backs of the neediest Californians. CalWorks program, which assists poor single mothers, will be gone; Cal Grants, which go to low income college students, will be gone. What kind of bare bones government can we expect?
