  • Because their expenditures were greater than their revenue (for many reasons, including the fact that Arnie kept cutting taxes so there was no revenue coming in to pay for all of the services/salaries that the state supports), and this kept going on until we ate through our reserves.

  • because all the rich occupants dont really establish residency there & there fore dont pay taxes on their big paychecks that they get for all those movies. How can a state that has hollywood and so many stars making so much money otherwise be broke?

  • Because the idiots in Sac wont agree on anything. Because people arent willing to pay for services. Because the economy went south, becasue tons of homes are being foreclosed on and no one is paying property taxes. Wonder if Sac will spend money it doesnt have to get rid of Arnie too.
