California voters rejected five ballot measures that would have raised their taxes by billions of dollars to fund a massive budget deficit created by the Democratic legislature and the renegade Republican governor. The brain dead Republican Party supported these measures. The tax hikes were defeated by 60% majorities. At the same time, voters by a 76% majority, voted to punish legislators if they fail to balance the budget by witholding their salary raises. So 76% of California's liberal electorate wants a balanced budget. Now what do you think that means sooner rather than later for a President who is spending us bankrupt to the tune of trillions?
