What California Could Do with $233,000,000 if Legislators Voted No on AB 783

March 30, 2011

The term pork barrel politics usually refers to spending that is intended to benefit constituents of a politician in return for their political support, either in the form of campaign contributions or votes – wikipedia.org

We all know that California is going through a massive budget crisis.  It’s a fact that all kinds of programs are being cut.  It’s hard to believe that politicians could ever let AB 783 or AB 374 pass through.  As a reminder, California is the largest employer of workers – government workers.  Let’s also not forget that POPTS costs the state of California at least $233,000,00/year in wasted on unnecessary, substandard Workers’ Compensation physical therapy care.

Here’s what the LA Times said (click here) a few days ago is being cut:

  1. Welfare,
  2. Medical programs for the poor and in-home care for the elderly and frail,
  3. Services for the developmentally disabled
  4. Mental health programs
  5. Early childhood programs

California state parks and California community colleges will close and suffer badly as well.

Stop the Madness!

California needs the $233,000,000 per year to fund programs for those that need it rather than line the pockets of the disingenuous!
