Democrats Gone Wild: California So Broke It's Assessing Payroll Taxes and Fines on Down's Syndrome and Cerebral Palsy Caretakers It Hasn't Paid

A KPBS interview with California State Assemblyman Joel Anderson (R) describes the tragic failure of the Democrat Party's brand of socialism.

Q: Tell me where we are with the vote on the budget.

A: We haven't had a vote yet. I'm in the minority party. We don't dictate when the votes come. The majority party does. Last year, we issued over 450,000 IOUs, totaling more than $3 billion. And many of these IOUs went to individuals and also to companies.

Q: Who gets the IOUs?

A: Vendors. Primarily vendors of the state of California.

Q: People who sell to the state?

A: Or people who have services. For example, we have Novis Homes in... in San Diego County. This is a 70-bed facility for Down's Syndrome and Cerebral Palsy clients. Many are orphans, their parents have long since passed away. And they're looking at a $270,000 fine.

Q: Can they say open under these circumstances.

A: I don't see how they can. Because they're having a tough time meeting payroll. And at the same time, we're asking them to pay payroll taxes.

I wonder whether the taxpaying residents of California's sanctuary cities appreciate the genius of the Democrat Party's brand of economic leadership.

Don't rely on MSM proofreaders,

Regarding the spelling of Trig Palin's disability or any other, please observe: Use the apostrophe-S if the affliction is named after someone who had it. Leave off the apostrophe-S if it is named after who discovered it. For example:

* Lou Gehrig's disease named after the patient it was diagnosed in.
* Down Syndrome named after the English physician John Langdon Down who characterized the condition, but did not have it.

o Let's use it in a sentence, shall we. -- "From the VA, 1200 US veterans recently found out they were mistakenly told they had life threatening Lou Gehrig's Disease. ...But, Obamacare will be different. Really."
