"It is absurd for Democrat to refuse to live within their means and expect California's taxpayers to pick up the tab for their poor spending choices," said Adams. "California's families have been hit hard by the economic downturn and are struggling to balance their own family's budget. With the holiday season approaching, Californians shouldn't have to choose between putting presents under the tree and giving more of their hard-earned money to Sacramento."
Lying weasel Anthony Adams, 1/22/09:
"(We must be able) to tell constituents, 'Look, we had to raise taxes, we had to go forward, but we've fundamentally altered the way in which Sacramento is going to be budgeted – and we will not have these problems again because of it,'" Adams said.
Every year, California Republicans promise to hold the line on taxes and spending. And every year, Schwarzenegger and the Democrats bribe or threaten enough weak Republicans to pass a budget with massive spending increases -- 40% in just four years. Now that real estate bubble tax revenues have dried up, instead of rolling back spending, Democrats are pushing Republicans to pass tax increases on the most overtaxed people in the country. And Anthony Adams is the weakest Republican.
Adams will probably be rewarded for betraying his constituents with a cushy, do-nothing, $100,000+ seat on the State Board of something-or-other. That's how Schwarzenegger and the Democrats typically bribe legislators. And Adams, an apparent four-time loser on the California Bar exam, could certainly use a do-nothing job.
