You read the title right – and who else to end up with an “error” of $1.9 Billion if not the government of California.
This puts California in an even more serious trouble than they’ve been in these past few months as its government buried itself in a deep pit of debt. Back in 2016, their debt amounted incredible $448 billion in local and state amounts. If you add that to their federal debt it gets closer to $848 billion, and that is A LOT!
And while any other Governor would take it in his hands to organize the state to be working overtime, cutting excess and going around areas to see what changes the could make, that isn’t the case with Governor Jerry Brown.
And although Brown and his accountants claim that they made a “simple” miscalculation, any normal person can realize that this was incompetence, even though they won’t admit it.
The Department of Finance spokesman H.D. Palmer stated “There’s no other way to describe this other than a straight up error in accounting, which we deeply regret.” Well Palmer needs to realize that “sorry” won’t get rid of the extra $1.9 billion debt he just added.
The situation in California is alarming as this is one more step down the road of destruction that the state has been paving for its citizens. The Democrats are nowhere to be found now, instead they seem completely oblivious and insensitive for the fact that their citizens as well as the rest of the U.S will be the ones suffering and footing the bill for their mistakes.
In this particular blunder, the impoverished wills suffer the most as nearly a quarter of the state’s 38 million residents (8.9 million) live in poverty, according to a new report from the Census Bureau. That is a huge amount of people that already endure so much, and now their government is adding more? Something needs to be done and the sooner – the better!
It is time that someone steps in and makes a change for California, that no one else has been capable of making up until now. At this point it would be better of all of us if they did secede. Or maybe they just need some competent people to be put in charge, to take care of the whole mess.
And our prayers go with our new President Donald Trump.
