California Gov. Jerry Brown's budget will post a surplus of over $850 million this year, down from a $9 billion deficit last year. Unemployment is forecast to fall, California will have surpluses in coming years, will be able to spend more on education and health care, and will be able to put away $1 billion for a rainy day fund. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/0...n_2450349.html
It's amazing what can happen when there is a Democratic executive and Democratic super-majorities in the legislature. Republicans are unable to fuck things up.
