While Jerry Brown and his enablers in the Assembly and the Senate continue to spend like profligates, California’s aging infrastructure continues to crumble. What’s $65 million here for illegal aliens to get driver’s licenses or $64 billion there for a doomed high-speed rail project1? Paltry sums in light of the benefits received2 relative to the costs incurred3. So be sure to thank a Democrat today4.

  1. One that has already cost at least millions just to defend against electoral challenges (read: accountability requirements). 
  2. Literally none, unless you’re a lobbyist or someone who employed a lobbyist. 
  3. Literally trillions over the decades of single-party rule in California. 
  4. Because tomorrow you might be drowning in the floodwaters from a failed dam, and then you’ll have missed your chance.
