Hilarious graph: what Californians got for their $27 billion

Man, those teachers' unions are working out great in Cali, aren't they?

"Would an Extra $27 Billion Improve CA Public School Performance?" op-ed in today’s Orange County Register [explains] that’s not a theoretical question. After adjusting for inflation and enrollment growth, CA spent $27 billion more on K-12 public schooling in 2010 than it did when Jerry Brown was first elected governor back in 1974. SAT scores fell over that period (see chart below).

...And if a $27 billion spending boost was associated with a decline in SAT scores, why would anyone expect Governor Brown’s proposal to raise another $7 billion in education taxes to do any good?

Say, I've got an idea for you hardworking California taxpayers: keep electing Democrats to office who are completely beholden to public sector unions and whose allegiance lies with illegal immigrants. That way, you'll keep paying more and more money for fewer and fewer services. At least until the state melts down in a cauldron of civil unrest.

That's the Democrat way.

Hat tip: BadBlue.

"we" are not electing them Doug.

the Nazional Socialist Democrat Creeps have overrun our state and have now rigged the voting rolls and the districts so they cannot lose regardless of what votes are cast, and their govt-union money-laundering thugs keep the stolen tax $$$ flowing to these criminals, so it's completely and utterly rigged against the Citizen.

and these F'rs have the gall to whine about disenfranchisement. as always, what they lie about us doing, they are actively doing to us.

it's Utopia, you know.

You can always vote with your feet and LEAVE. I highly recommend it as it will bring Kalifornia's collapse on much sooner when the producers go Galt.
