California following Georgia election tactics

Suddenly, as the governor special election is growing nearer, California has a budget surplus. And with that surplus Newsome is planning to issue $600 stimulus checks. Deja Vu. But to give them credit, you stick with what is proven to work.

 

Of course at least a third of that surplus is due to the Biden stimulus. Even less surprising is no mention of how much of that surplus is due to the Trump stimulus.

California's state budget has grown to $75.7 billion, Gov. Gavin Newsom said Monday, thanks to a recovering economy, better-than-expected tax revenues, and aid from the federal government's February stimulus package.

This marks a drastic turnaround from last summer, when California was facing a budget deficit of $54 billion and Newsom proposed slashing the state budget by 9% and cutting state workers' pay by one-tenth in order to balance the budget.

 

The budget surplus this year will give Newsom and the state government $38 billion in extra funds to spend on new projects and initiatives. Part of the surplus included the $26 billion the state is expected to receive from President Joe Biden's stimulus package from earlier this year.

 

“California is not coming back, California is going to come roaring back,” Newsom said at a press conference on Monday.

The surplus is more than twice what the state finance department estimated at the beginning of the year, reflecting a strong economy that has bounced back from the pandemic-induced recession, particularly for wealthier residents who pay higher taxes.

The governor proposed using more than $8 billion of the surplus to expand the $600 state stimulus checks intended for millions of low- and middle-income Californians as well as give an additional $500 more to those families with children. The payments would go to families with less than $75,000 a year in income, which would benefit almost 80% of all people in the state.

 

Newsom will be required to put forth a revised budget plan later this week, and the final balanced budget plan must pass the state Legislature by June 15.

He is basically trying to bribe people not to vote for a recall. He crushed small businesses in the state.  He never cared about them for a second.

He didn’t just destroy small businesses. In typical democrat fashion, he kept his own business open, I believe it was a winery? Yet forced others to close. They all think they are above us. Hopefully his recall goes through, but many more need removing, not just him.

I hope all of the people that were locked down for so long remember who was responsible. I hope they remember watching all of the other states starting to reopen. I hope the $600 does not erase their memories. But as a manager of mine once said "Hope is not a strategy".
