FAIL:::: California Governor Jerry Brown approves $108,000,000,000 ($108 BILLION) budget
Here is where the money is directed:

Lawmakers agreed to Brown's plan to set aside $1.6 billion for the state's rainy day fund and approved companion legislation to start reducing $74 billion in unfunded teacher pension liabilities.

Spends $264 million for free preschool and day care for low-income families. The preschool program eventually will serve half of all 4-year-olds in the state, about 234,000 children.

Increases the maximum aid allowed under California's welfare-to-work program, CalWORKS, by 5 percent starting next April.

Includes $1 billion to cover higher-than-expected Medi-Cal enrollment rates as part of the federal Affordable Care Act's Medicaid expansion.

Relatives and workers who care for the elderly and people with disabilities outside of nursing homes will be entitled to overtime pay.

Gives $250 million this year and a quarter of future revenues from California's greenhouse gas emissions law to the $68 billion high-speed rail project.

Despite broad authority to veto items in the budget, Brown issued just a handful of changes mainly to clean up legislation.

He reduced by half the state staffing responsible for making sure insurance plans provide mental health coverage at the same level as medical conditions to save $2.5 million. He removed $700,000 for a teen driver safety study because the program is already underway.

His pie will continue to shrink with those high tax rates. Liberals just don't understand basic economics. Companies are leaving in droves, the middle class is disappearing and the rich are seeking greener pastures with lower taxes.

What will be his new tax base? Illegal aliens? Welfare recipients? Since the dawn of the income tax, the best way to increase revenue has always been to lower taxes. Moreover that is the moral and proper way to govern, to minimize government, which is an overhead function.

Liberals also don't seem to understand that government is not the reason we live, it is rather an unpleasant overhead function.
With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible
