About that surprise California budget “surplus”: There’s no surprise and no surplus either. “Today we learn the ‘surprise’ $5-billion bump in revenue in January is likely an accounting anomaly as a result of tax changes.” Should we ask if the pols spent the “surplus” already and are now even deeper in the hole? Or maybe let it be another “surprise”.

They spent twice as much, and Gov Moonbeam will try to convince everyone that -5 Billion + -5 Billion equals 0.

What -5 bil + -5 bil?

Whatever the Party and the Collaborationist Media tell you it is.

Yes, & they get rewarded at election time as well. California gets what it bloody deserves, & then many will move out to escape the bs. They then start voting for the very same types of politicians who then start doing what destroyed their old state.

California’s cordless bungee jump into the economic abyss continues. It’s a race now between the Golden State and Illinois to see which one goes bankrupt first. Question: what do these two states have in common?

One has two ex-governors in prison and the other doesn’t?

Haven’t they already been spending money that isn’t there?

The only surprise would be if the HAVEN’T spent the money yet.

They spent that money that didn’t exist, and a whole bunch more non-existing money.
