Will California Ever Thrive Again?

There was more of the same old, same old California news recently. Some 62 percent of state roads have been rated poor or mediocre. There were more predictions of huge cost overruns and yearly losses on high-speed rail — before the first mile of track has been laid. One-third of Bay Area residents were polled as hoping to leave the area soon.

Such pessimism is daily fare, and for good reason.

The basket of California state taxes — sales, income and gasoline — rates among the highest in the U.S. Yet California roads and K-12 education rank near the bottom.

    Don’t worry California. Wynne is going to be sending you all sorts of money with her cap and trade scam.

    Mass immigration + Democrat rule is crushing. People used to move here for the great schools.

      That is why my second son and his American wife send our two grandsons to private schools, even though it is a financial sacrifice to do so.

        It seems like public schools are nothing more than diversity propaganda camps these days. All that touchy feely stuff won’t help job skills.

    The premium to exit California via uhaul is still about $300+, better than 2 years ago when it was over $1000

    So sad how leftists ruined such a great place.

      It’s what they do best.

      I thought the article was about California not Ontario.

      • Alain

        Actually Ontario is even worse when one takes into account the population difference.

      Living in BC, tell me about it.

    Time to get out while you can. As long as libturds live in this state and vote in this state it will NEVER change to the better.
    I just wonder when it does crash how many other states will it drag down with it into the oblivion?
