With regard to Assemblywoman Buchanan statement relating to the word they all use when increasing taxes - TEMPORARY - If you really believe that Ms. Buchanan, the Governor would like to sell you that big RED bridge that connects SF with Marin County for just $5 bucks. Oh well, maybe that's why they put Freshman in front of your name. That's what they should do of Obama...Freshman President Obama. And that other freshman comment...SURPRISED by the behavior she saw in the capital, please give me a break. If you are trying to tell us you are naive, you are doing a good job. Plus, if you really believe people in leadership will ever lead by example...that bridge is still for sale. Don't mean to be hard on you, but I would suggest choosing your words better. Thank you

Democrats have been in control of spending in California since the 70's and are the cause of the mess we are in! It's time they realized that if they can't afford to pay for something they should not buy it! Quit wining and do whats right for the hard working people of California.

They were certainly trying to, but the republicans held out until they got 32 million dollars for horse racing. Yeah, that's going to create a lot of jobs. Meanwhile, our kids get their education budget cut by 400 bucks a kid.

Give me a break and parcel out the blame to both sides because its well deserved.
