Mr. Veto

Jerry Brown vetoed the budget that was sent to him by his own party, saying it “continues big deficits… and adds billions of dollars of new debt. It also contains legally questionable maneuvers, costly borrowing and unrealistic savings. Finally, it is not financeable and (will) not allow us to meet our obligations as they occur.”
