Ballot Propositions In California: San Diego Approves "Fair and Open Competition" In County-Paid Projects; California As A State Reduces The Threshold For Taxing and Spending From 2/3rds to 50%

A bit of common sense from San Diego, where the county has banned union-beloved Project Labor Agreements (which essentially create a closed shop for projects in which only unionized workers can compete).

On the other hand...

For years, Democrats have held wide majorities in both houses of the Legislature. But they claim they have been held hostage by a recalcitrant Republican minority that often refuses to offer up votes for a state budget. Today, voters decided to change the way the state budget process works, removing the two-thirds vote requirement to pass a state spending plan.

No measure on the state ballot will alter the way Sacramento operates more than Prop. 25.... Opponents say it will allow Democrats to raise fees on a host of products and services -- including alcohol to tobacco -- and remove an important check on Democrats' power in the Legislature.

All I can say to California voters (present company excluded, of course) is "This is what you voted for." I have no sympathy. Enjoy.

PS, bailouts are over, guys. Daddy's taking California's credit card away. You'll have to live within your means now. Since you refuse to cut spending, that will mean much higher taxes.

Again, this is what you voted for. Good luck with that.
