Jerry Brown: Support My Tax Hike

California

H/T Walter Russell Mead

In case you missed it, Gov. Jerry Brown has a special message for OD readers in California about the need to raise taxes to cover the new state budget deficit:

Note: The collapse of “The D” would pale in comparison to the collapse of the Golden State. California is still on track to become the first state to get “Greeced.”

I’m wondering what he meant when he said the courts and federal government had prevented them from cutting billions? When are the States going to stand up, be counted and tell the federal goverment to pack sand?
