George Skelton (who the LA Times should be featuring more prominently) on what the California Republicans won in our state budget struggled:
"The compromise budget is pretty conservative for most people's money. It increases spending by only 1% and doesn't raise taxes. It strips $1.3 billion from public transit and freezes payments to the elderly poor, blind and disabled. It provides a tax break for Californians who buy yachts out of state."From your yacht, you can see the snarled traffic!
