Proposed Budget defunds HIV Meds for Inmates (and more) (tags)
On May 14, 2010, Governor Schwarzenegger released his 2010/2011 budget revision, commonly referred to as the “May Revise”. The May Revise is an updated budget proposal based on California’s most recent revenue estimates and policy proposals. The 2010/2011 budget revision attempts to address California’s ongoing economic difficulties, including a projected budget gap of $19.9 billion. The Governor is seeking to fill the gap through a combination of expenditure cuts ($12.4 billion), federal funds ($3.4 billion), alter‐native funding ($1.3 billion) and fund shifts and loans ($2.1 billion).
Stewart Alexander: Gov. Schwarzenegger has Failed Calif., Should Resign (tags)
With time quickly approaching for the 2010 California Election, it would be too costly for California voters to recall Governor Schwarzenegger; however, before the state becomes bankrupt and Californians suffer greater losses, Governor Schwarzenegger should resign immediately.
California Apocalypse (tags)
Though a lot of so-called “progressives” voted no on the ballot measures on California’s May 19 special election ballot, the overwhelming defeat of these legislative compromises aimed at a short-term solution to California's budget problems has been a boon for the radical Right. For 43 years, ever since they elected Ronald Reagan as governor in 1966 and passed Proposition 13 in 1978, a cadre of radical-Right Republicans have been seeking to destroy the financial basis of California's government and thereby force the elimination of virtually all social welfare programs as well as scorched-earth cuts in education and health care. Now they’ve got their wish: after the budget dust settles, California will now no longer be in the business of helping working-class and lower-income people, and will instead be a low-tax,corporate-privilege Libertarian haven.
Gov. proposes cutting ALL HIV Services (tags)
In addition to draconian cuts to education, CalWorks, Mental Health, Substance Abuse, Healthy Families, we can anticipate a fight about the actual necessity of HIV services in California. Is this the real world?
Heath Insurance Bill Puts Poor at Risk (tags)
I got this in my email. The latest health care law is likely to pass, because progressive health care supporters are split on the issue. Unions are split on it. Political energy for real universal health care is being lost. This bill is similar to the one offered by the governor, but because it's sponsored by Speaker Nunez, the dealmakers have managed to get more liberal support for it. Working class and poor people need to organize to demand protections from the gaps in this bill.
