Fantasies and error abound on state budget

Dan Walters, columnist for the Sacramento Bee has an excellent piece on our current budget mess.

I especially liked this part of his article.

Democrats howled that state-supported services could not sustain any more reductions and drew “a line in the sand.” But neither they nor Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger can adequately explain how the state’s revenues could rise from $70 billion a year in 2003-04, when Schwarzenegger first became governor on a pledge to end “crazy deficit spending,” to $100 billion today and yet the budget’s deficit is much bigger. Where’d all that money go?

That is a question a lot of us have these days, where did the money go?

The legislators and Governor have a lot to answer for on this subject.
