California budget realities

I’m a bit surprised that this video only has 2,313 views since it was uploaded a few weeks ago. I really think more people need to watch it. It’s a very compelling take on what really is and isn’t the source of the state’s seemingly perpetual budget crisis.

Unfortunately I don’t know a ton about the state budget, so I’m not really in a position to evaluate whether these arguments have any merit. But the fact that they are presented by the budget committee chair is pretty convincing. Sure she’s a Democrat, but she probably also knows more about the budget than anyone else in the legislature, so I’m inclined to take her word for it.
