Seeing the CA Budget Impasse at Grass Roots Level

Original post made by Paul Losch, a resident of Palo Alto, on Jul 9, 2009

One of the things that gives me a good feeling about the business I own and run is that I am able to outsource a portion of the work we do to an agency in Santa Clara Country that works with and supports mentally handicapped individuals. It is a win/win, where I get a good value, a good work product, and for the people at the agency, it is a project they really enjoy working on.

California is facing a $24 billion budget gap with no obvious way to close it.
Governing by apocalypse is the only option left to the Governator, who cannot get the Democrats to accept budget cuts and could not persuade the electorate in the referendum to accept tax increases.
The CA. Government will have to cut spending, which means that consumers will cut spending, which means that the economy will crawl along its L-shaped recession path indefinitely.
