Federal Government Budget Deficit in October is Three Times the Annual Budget Deficits of the Banana Republic of California.

California has been the poster child of ineffective state government.  Bickering politicians, constant spending, and budget deficits that baffle the economic bottom line.  But California isn’t alone in this spend more than you earn reality.  Last year, California had to patch up $60 billion in budget deficits.  A large and historical sum no doubt.  Yet […]
