Recently, the Tribune printed an article that said if all the taxpayers paid what they owed without pushing the deduction envelope, then California would wipe out its debt. Even if everyone paid the max, the government would manage to blow it anyway. The more you give, the more they spend.
How about cutting the waste in government instead of always wanting more money? They will never so that, as the money doesn’t come out of their pocket, but just try to take their perks away and watch them yell.
Best thing to do is to vote all of them out and start over, as it could not be any worse.
