Is California bankrupt? Already three communities have officially declared
bankruptcy and many more will be declaring bankruptcy. Why? What happened to
cause expenditures to exceed revenues? Could it be that those communities
provided government services to people who were not citizens, people who were
"using" the system to their advantage without taking the responsibility
of paying taxes. Could it be that more people were hired by the government in
those communities to handle the problems that illegal immigration add to
schools, hospitals and housing? Could it be that the wages paid to those extra
government workers strained the budgets of those communities until those
communities were unable to pay their suppliers?The L.A. Times took a
very simplistic approach to solving the "jail" problem without
addressing the real problem - people have crossed the border illegally and
California is facing bankruptcy partly because of those people.
