The Bee Says 'NO'
Reading the Bee today, I find an interesting juxtaposition on the editorial page of the Sacramento Bee. In an editorial titled 'Hey, big spenders', the Bee chides our Senators for voting no on a bi-partisan bill to reduce farm subsidies and then recommends No on propositions 73 through 80. Leave the other propositions alone for the moment and consider Prop 78 - the baudget control proposition. In light of the impossibility of controlling the California budget under current mandates, the Bee will have nothing to do with reforming the process but will criticize our senators for continuing farm subsidies at their current inflated level. Talk about a double standard.
