Jerry Brown Just Vetoed His Own Budget Plan

Today California Governor Jerry Brown vetoed a budget plan that in large part he put together. The original plan had called for spending cuts in the budget and a package of tax increases that would have been put up for a vote for all Californians to decide on. Republicans in the state assembly managed to block the statewide popular vote on the tax increases leaving only the tax cuts in the budget which alone did not provide a balanced and sustainable budget. I guess the Republicans think the people should not be allowed to decide to increase their own taxes to fix a massive budget problem. Bring on the bickering.  Source SFGateComment
