California treasurer and Democrat Bill Lockyer with a refreshing dose of truth:
From Ed Morrissey at HotAir:
I’ll trust that you’ve watched it and point to this passage as the best part of the rant:
It’s impossible for this legislature to reform the pension system, and if we don’t, we bankrupt the state. And I don’t think anybody can do it here, because of who elected you. … You’re just captive of the current environment — I don’t see any way out!
Translation: Democrats are too far into the pockets of the unions to effectively govern California. That is what created the Golden State debacle, and the marriage to the unions keeps the Democrats from making the budgetary decisions necessary to rescue California from ruin.
However, even if Bill Lockyer can’t see any way out, I see one: stop electing Democrats to the Legislature. If the state GOP doesn’t have this clip in ads by the end of next week, maybe California needs better GOP leadership, too.
