    California Democrats Ignore Brown Win: Vote For Bankruptcy
    by Thomas Del Beccaro

    Reagan famously said that Republicans believe everyday is the 4th of July and the Democrats believe everyday is April 15th. An oversimplification to be sure, but that sentiment was not far from the minds of the Massachusetts voters. Already laboring under a bad state imposed health care system, in spectacular fashion, they rejected ObamaCare and elected Scott Brown to a “people’s seat.”

    In California, that lesson apparently went unnoticed for California Democrats. Less than 48 hours after the dust settled from the Brown triumph, California Democrats voted for a State imposed “universal” health care plan. In other words, a state run health care system that would bar private insurance.

    Keep in mind that California is already amidst a chronic and prolonged budget crisis brought on by runaway spending and exorbitant taxing. Perennially listed among the worst states in our Union to do business, California features 10%+ income taxes and the highest regulatory burden around. So imposing are the costs to business in California, despite its ports and natural resources, Nevada and its desert is #1 in the Country in new business development.

    I did not know that quote of Reagan's, but it's great and I am going to use it! :applause:

    Hey, let the Democrats do this, if California goes Republican they are finished. Gotta give 'em credit, they are not abadoning their sinking ship.

    It won't pass. Even if it does, the Governator will veto it.

    I don't know if it will pass or not, but similar bills have passed before. Arnold did veto them and probably will veto this one as well.

    What is amazing to me is the mindset of democrats who are stupid enough to even try. Especially considering the budgetary problems California already has.:tonofbricks:

    Carpro, you are making the mistake of assuming that these yo-yos think rationally -- or even that they THINK!

    They are so conditioned to tax & spend, that they will go to their graves trying to "impose 1 more tax & spend 3 times whatever it nets" before the first shovel of dirt hits the coffin.:BangHead:

    I too didn't know this quote, but like it.

    Big business has its problems and has caused their share of problems. But big government has cause me so many more problems and caused business many problems. I don't trust big government, because they live off of the exception and I don't.


    They have run out more business than they know what to do with. They like entertainment business and wine for the most part. No one cares about how much they make but others they care, good pr work.
