We all know every year there is a budget that has to be passed, and yet it's never passed on time. If this was a privately owned company, these irresponsible people would be out of a job. Instead of lowering the pay of hard-working taxpayers, why not take away the leased cars, gas cards and all of the free perks these people get until they do the job they're supposed to do?
Now they are saying if the Democrats don't get to go to their convention next week then the following week the Republicans won't go to theirs, because neither one can go if the budget is not passed. Which means at least another three weeks of doing nothing but making lame excuses and finger-pointing.
Put away your egos get it done. The people of California are counting on all of you to take care of business in an efficient and timely manner.
While I am on the subject of perks, is it possible to find out what kind of fuel-efficient cars we taxpayers pay for on the leases for these people and what are the monthly fuel bills that we pay?
