California Wasted $19 Billion of Taxpayer Money

Tuesday, March 23, 2010

According to the California Taxpayers Association, California has wasted $19 billion since the year 2000, citing nearly 130 instances of severe waste on everything from Medical fraud and welfare to transportation and criminal justice. See their shocking (or maybe not so shocking) report here.

This report coincides with a state budget that is about $20-billion in the red heading into the new fiscal year. The government's answer has been deep cuts to education, teacher layoffs and fire & rescue downsizing while social programs seem to be comparatively thriving.

California simply cannot control its spending. This is liberal politics at its finest.

(BTY, this is the tip of the iceberg. Much of the waste goes unreported and the majority of cases that are reported cannot be quantified in dollars and cents).
