Jerry Brown Address to the People of California
Governor Jerry Brown took the California budget issue to the people via a YouTube video. I thought I would help him promote his ideas and give my own suggestions. Hopefully, he will approve my video reply.
Today, in what may be an unprecedented move by a governor (unless you count this clip of Arnold Schwarzenegger with a giant knife), Jerry Brown took California's budget war online with a direct YouTube appeal to Californians. For anyone not paying attention, Brown has vowed to balance California's deficit by any means necessary—closing a massive gap of some $26.5 billion. The legislature is about halfway there, having agreed to cuts in services for the poor, the disabled, college students, and so on.
