OK — let’s see what our liberal lawmakers have and are doing for us. The news I am getting says California has the nation’s highest poverty rate. More than a third of Californians are now on Medi-Cal, the state-federal health care program for the poor. Businesses are leaving the state, not wanting to stay because of the way our state treats them. We now have higher gas taxes and vehicle registration for roads, which compared to other states screams mismanagement.
I contacted our state Sen. Bill Monning about whether these funds are going where they are supposed to and not being bled off. I got the usual from his office — nothing. I have never gotten an answer from his office. I believe we pay his wages.
We are now a sanctuary state, which I am against. This all for people here illegally. I believe you should come here, like my ancestors, legally. Our state is going against our country’s laws is the way I look at it.
I believe all of these things and other stuff that is going on is shafting the citizens of our state.
Never miss a local story.
