1st Personal Blog Post – Budget

Sharing is caring!

From my vantage point it appears that a vast majority of people are against the budget that was just approved by the Senate.  I know that there is a way to go on this to make it final but I am continually flabbergasted by the stated direction of “conservative” leadership.

If I remember correctly ‘trickle down theory” has proven to be a disaster for state, local and federal government.  In California, ever since the Javis-Gann Proposition was approved the quality of life at street level has gotten worse.  I can remember going to a public playground and checking out a basketball or playing ping-pong.  Those rec centers were closed in my area years ago.  Now kids have no place to play unless their parents pay for it.

Hearing the politicians who openly say they do not want to help those who do not help themselves (because we cannot afford it) with no repercussions amazes me.  Is this what we really want?  Many Millionaires even stated that they did not need or want their taxes lowered, that it would be irresponsible.

In many ways I guess I am numb to it all like many others.  Like a deer in the headlights. Is their another side to this story?
