Every month California families stretch their budgets and pinch their pennies to make ends meet. Not so in the State Capitol. There, budget gimmicks and creative tax schemes encourage the state's spending spree. This has got to stop.
When pet projects, political handouts to special interests, and ineffective programs take priority over California citizens putting gas in the car, buying new school clothes, or repairing the water heater, something is seriously wrong in our state. I will not stand by silently while the liberals in Sacramento put their interests - like lining their crony's pockets or buying off interest groups - ahead of the interests of California's families.
