Brown takes to You Tube to tell Californians about ‘$16 Billion budget hole’

By Brian Hews

SACRAMENTO – Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. will release his revised budget proposal at a press conference in Sacramento on Monday, followed by a press conference later in the day in Los Angeles.

But the California Governor took to You Tube on Saturday morning to announce a $16 Billion shortfall for the next fiscal year.

“We are still recovering from the worst recession since the 1930’s,” Brown says in the You Tube clip entitled “Address to the People of California: Governor Brown discusses 2012-2013 Budget.”

“Tax receipts are coming in lower than expected,” and “we are facing a $16 Billion hole, up from $9 billion we thought in January,” Brown states in the  two and a half minute clip.

“This means we will have to go much further and make cuts far greater than I asked for in the beginning of the year,” Brown said.  He also asks voters to support a plan that would tax the “highest earning Californians to pay three percent more in their income tax for the next seven years, and would increase sales taxes one quarter of one percent for the next four years,” Brown said.

  • JK says:

    maybe Gov. Brown could have a dinner party and raise $15million

  • JK-Part 2 says:

    or maybe any State official that makes over $100k a year could take a salary reduction down to $100k until the State budget is balanced? Maybe all the State Universities and Colleges could get the salaries and spending under control?”

  • Dave Francis says:

    If no other law is passed by the Government, mandatory (E-verify H.R. 2885) needs to be the policy of this country? If E-Verify is enacted the mass exodus of millions of foreign nationals will begin, as they will be unable to find a job and it will discourage the annual influx of more foreigners into the country. Both political parties have done nothing about this unlawful epidemic, as the Democrats expect blocs of minority voters-Whether a citizen or not makes no difference to them. Republicans just want to exploit the cheap labor for their big corporate campaign contributors. POLITICS IS ABOUT MONEY, INFLUENCE AND POWER—NOTHING MORE? ITS JUST PLAIN UNADULTERATED GREED? Our country is so divided; brain washed by the left and illegal immigration has caused this massive spreading abyss. The agendas are so irreparable that the government has turned on its own people, as we have seen with Arizona, Alabama, Georgia, Utah, South Carolina and others waiting for court outcomes. Our nation has turned into a welfare state for foreign countries own populace. Right now, California has been hit a hard financial blow, because of its Liberal state capitol, is genuflecting to the illegal alien invasion, carrying a cost of $16 billion dollars with no end in sight.

    Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich With the $550 million for public safety and nearly $500 million for healthcare, the total cost for illegal immigrants to County taxpayers exceeds $1.6 billion dollars a year, this doesn’t cover the billions in education costs; and doesn’t include the billions more in education. California, the epitome of a Sanctuary state will be the leader as millions of illegal aliens fleeing aliens arrive there, from less benevolent states? Unfortunately left wing Governor Jerry (moonbeam) Brown is now preaching more taxes, cuts in benefits—when removing the millions of foreign national could save the state. Not state, not county but a federal law that will stop this theft of American jobs. Unscrupulous employers need to be held accountable and harshly find and sentenced to prison. Rather than go into the details about the taxpayers ripped off, judge for yourself by going to NumbersUSA and American Patrol websites.

    Also the most costly payout from taxpayers is the children that are slipped in by visitors from other countries or across our poorly enforced fence at the border that are eligible to become citizens, which promotes massive chain migration and enables parents to settle here. Over 400 thousand are estimated to take advantage of this misinterpreted law, again costing genuine Americans welfare programs. The birthright citizenship law must be amended, so only children with one citizen parent allows this right. Don’t remain blind to the profiteers in Washington and demand they enforce immigration laws. Because of this fiasco of our Immigration laws business owners are directly responsible for the growing amount of $113 Billion dollars in public welfare programs.

    According to the Heritage Foundation if Democrats get their way, we would be adding a further 2.6 Trillion dollars to the already accelerating 15.6 Trillion dollars if an amnesty is imposed. Both political parties are responsible for this parasitic invasion, which is catering to any of the 20 million plus illegal aliens already here. Even while they are stealing us blind of our own impoverished, our own sick and homeless, they are stealing another $4.2 billion dollars from taxpayers through the incompetence of the IRS, who would audit American for exaggerating on the business car mileage. Even illogical to this is that illegal aliens are allowed to wire out of America annually over $40 billion dollars to foreign banks not being absorbed back into the economy. Our country has been neglected for years, occupied by illegal immigrants and hordes of criminals. Mitt Romney better not turn on the massive TEA PARTY on this issue, or they will realize he cannot be trusted. Americans haven’t learned that you cannot get something for nothing. Half of this country’s population, live off the other half’s income and that is why our social safety nets are failing. The last realistic chance we have of getting out of our financial mess is to remove the old members of Congress and state capitals, with Tea Party leaders. It happened in Indiana when Senator Richard Lugar was retired, replaced by a Tea Party lawmaker.
