Bernstein With a Twist
This is a weekly program with commentary on current issues.
I don’t want to get anybody’s hopes up, but I may have stumbled across the cure to California’s budget paralysis: science.
Putting an end to this knuckle-headed Sacto-drama can’t happen too soon. The hapless Debtinator, so-called legislative “leaders” and the remaining flock of back benchers, several of whom “represent” the Empire, may have already pushed us off the cliff. The budget gap is $42 billion. They do nothing.
GOP legislators have stopped rooming together, fearing they’ll be targeted in the next election if they’re caught talking about raising taxes. In their sleep!
Democrats are hearing it from the unions: Don’t cave to sinister GOP attempts to change workplace rules governing breaks and overtime. I almost feel sorry for legislators when this subject comes up. What do they know about breaks and overtime? They don’t work!
(Wait! This actual news release just in: The California Senate recognized both National Engineers Week and National Surveyors Week with separate resolutions on Thursday. Sen. John Benoit, R-Bermuda Dunes, presented SR 11, a resolution recognizing National Surveyors Week while Sen. Alex Padilla, D-San Fernando, presented SR 10 to recognize National Engineers Week. Both resolutions passed unanimously. They do work! I stand corrected.)
