Let California Fail

Since the proposed budget is bad (too many cuts in the wrong places), why should Democrats support it? Why isn’t the state Democratic Party telling the voters that this disaster has been caused by the Republicans? Why are the Democrats not seizing the ideological moment by calling this budget disaster a Republican disaster? We ought to insist now on a budget that is fair — and if that fails, we ought to go to the voters and tell them that the Republicans have caused their state government to fail.
Only then will we have the chance to get real change in California.
