State Budget Fixes Don't Fix Anything

Hosted by

Last week, after the longest unconstitutional delay in state history, the legislature passed another budget that nobody likes, once again kicking most of the $19 billion deficit to the next legislature and whoever is elected Governor. Joe Mathews, fellow at the new America Foundation and coauthor of California Crackup: How Reform Broke the Golden State and How We Can Fix It, has more on the passing the buck on the budget and on two supposed reforms on next month's ballot, Propositions 25 and 26.
