Can the Public Balance California's Budget?

The LA Times has a cool web site that gives you a menu of tax increases and expenditure cuts to see what you would do to balance our state's budget.

Who knew that interactive media is so much fun?

I was able to balance our budget without too many tricks such as dipping into the 2010 revenue pot or by taking any $ from the community colleges or UCs. I emptied out the jails and furloughed a few people but somebody has to make the tough choices and the buck stops here!

I raised sin taxes and gas taxes, but mostly cut.
