California politicians need to be unselfish to solve financial crisis

Our state is and has been suffering through a huge budget deficit that got enormously worse while Schwarzenegger was governor. Jerry Brown ran for governor knowing full well that if elected he would be burdened, dealing with the disaster left by Schwarzenegger. And he's giving it his best effort, but it's going to take more time than our state and Californians have.

The poor and middle class suffered what seemed an eternity under Arnold's "Reign of Terror" and still are.

Medical, dental, podiatry, optical, mental health care, education, the disabled, the elderly and numerous other programs have been consistently cut or done away with. Arnold's budget cuts affected every county and city in our state. He showed no mercy except to the wealthy.
