California Assembly Joins State Senate in Approving Budget
SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- The California Assembly has joined the state Senate in approving a long-awaited budget, sending the package to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger after an epic battle that involved several all-night sessions and political concessions.
The budget flew through the Assembly less than an hour after it won approval by a single vote in the Senate after late-night horse trading to win over a final Republican.
The budget included a combination of spending cuts, tax increases and borrowing, intended to close a projected $42 billion budget deficit and to stop a fast-arriving fiscal disaster for the state.
I can't wait to find out which wuss RINOs caved in to this. This is so fucked up. This week, my Fiance and I decided to get our house ready to be put on the market. We are very lucky to have a ton of equity in it despite this shitty market.
My Fiance runs a successful business, but we are going to pack up and get the hell out of this state. The only thing that really keeps me here is my mom, but Nevada or Arizona isn't that far.
