There's NO BUDGET for us after over a month into the fiscal year, yet our top legislators were partying at the Chukchansi Casino. Couldn't they have solved the budget over the crap table? Oh, craps table, sorry, I was confused by what they were spewing.
Let's see, a $15 BILLION deficit that they can't figure out how to fix. I KNOW, I KNOW.. QUIT spending so much and start going after those who haven't paid yet. Don't let tribes be LATE on their payments.
Assembly Speaker Karen Bass, Assembly Republican Leader Mike Villines and Senate Republican Leader Dave Cogdill were among the VIPs Chukchansi's soiree. That's three of the so-called Big Four legislative leaders. They could have celebrated the casino's expansion by giving Californians a budget.
Gov. Arnold had just issued an ill-conceived executive order trying to reduce the pay of 200,000 state workers to the federal minimum wage of $6.55 an hour until the budget is passed. Bass said that was terrible, but not terrible enough for her to require the Democratic caucus to stay in Sacramento and solve the problem. Villines and Cogdill didn't offer much more.
Your JOB IS NOT DONE and partying with a tribe like Chukchansi, that has terminated so many Indians IS NOT going to get it done. Of course, you can choose to do it the way Chukchansi does it. GET RID of some citizens (illegals) and we'll have more money for the rest of us. Provide nothing for them and we'll have MO' Money. If you think that's okay for Chukchansi and Pechanga, it should be okay for California.
