The California Legislative Democrats passed a budget yesterday and minority Republicans, whose votes don't matter since Prop 25 passed in 2010, are fuming.
Assemblyman Dan Logue (R-Marysville) had this to say in a press release:
“Our budget process should not be carried out behind closed doors through back room deals."
“This budget takes us in exactly the wrong direction and relies on passage of a job-killing $8.5 billion tax increase that does nothing to balance the budget.
"Instead, the majority party has chosen, yet again, to increase government spending at the very time hard working Californians are struggling just to get by.”Logue said the majority party missed a critical opportunity to seriously address major issues confronting California’s flagging economy.
“Sacramento will not succeed in taxing California into prosperity – it has never happened anywhere.
"The budget passed today by the majority party places the Golden State on the path to an economy and credit rating that, in my opinion will rival that of Greece. This budget serves only as a testament to how out of touch Sacramento liberals are with California’s hard-working families.”Logue represents the 3rd Assembly District in the California Legislature, which includes Colfax and North Auburn.
