California certainly has a strange approach to government and finances. There seems to be a belief that the funds required for any liberal plan will just be there no matter how derelict the government is in managing its financial affairs.
In fact, it might turn out that the infatuation leadership in California has with paying the living expenses of illegal aliens will help drain the state’s treasury so much that it will no longer be able to fund promised benefits for the American residents of the state. That will be the real test of the sincerity of the left. It’s easy to be generous when it costs you nothing.
In hastening its day of financial reckoning, California has now considered allocating funds to illegals so they can argue their cases in court against being deported.
Perhaps this sort of nonsense should be expected from a state that has now on two separate occasions elected Governor “Moonbeam” to its top executive position. How the same people can elect both Ronald Reagan and Jerry Brown to the governorship defies all reason.
Breitbart reports that “Last week, California Governor Jerry Brown unveiled his May revisions to the state budget proposal he rolled out in January. Buried deep among billions of dollars in proposed new spending are millions of dollars for the state to provide criminal defense for illegal immigrants in California who are facing deportation to their home country by our own federal government.”
It sort of makes you wonder if Californians have considered the endpoint for this dereliction. That would be a state with an enormous budget filled with people who do not pay taxes. Many would see the problem there, but apparently a majority of Californians who vote do not.
Governor Brown has been very bold in his plans to ruin California fiscally. “Let me be clear: We will defend everybody — every man, woman and child — who has come here for a better life and has contributed to the well-being of our state.”
Wonder what he meant by that last phrase: “and has contributed to the well-being of our state?”
It probably meant nothing, but rather was just something he or his speechwriter added because it sounded good.
The hard facts are that Mr. Brown’s state budget proposes to devote millions of dollars to assist illegal migrants wage battles in the courts against the federal government.
And there are people surprised that California faces financial catastrophe?
