    In an interview earlier in the week, the Governor stated that although there was “progress” on the budget a deal was still two or three weeks away.  In Capitol-speak that means they are nowhere near a deal…  In other news, the Governor has tried to reinstate furloughs, but a judge said “uh-uh.” 

    Democrats want $4.5 billion in higher taxes, some on corporations and oil firms.  But a state income tax increase has also been introduced, in a scheme that can only be described as “odd.”  The theory is to have a higher California tax to increase revenues and allow a greater amount deducted from Federal taxes.  This head-scratcher, was rightly deemed as a middle class tax hike by nonpartisan Legislative Analyst’s Office.
