Cut the real problem. Education. They spend 39 billion per year on higher education of which 13 billion comes from the state. Why? Dont students pay ridiculous amounts of money to go to college? Or is it all the free rides they give to the A students with scholarships? If those students are so smart they can figure a way to pay for college themselves. I mean if the D students can find a way, surely the A students can too. And Cut k-12 too. 61 billion per year (40 billion from state funds) is way too much. I mean 40% of the budget is going to education? I dont even spend 40% of my budget on my housing! No more than 10% MAX of the budget should go to education. If parents want smarter kids, they can fork out the money to pay for it themselves. All kids need to know is Reading, writing, and math. Everything else should be considered luxury education and paid for out of pocket by parents or taught at home. But no...schools are basically glorified day cares teaching stuff that 90% of will never be used and that 90% of worthless stuff being taught will be forgot by the time they finish High school anyway. (dont believe me? Just watch the show are you smarter than a 5th grader) There...30 seconds and i just saved CA 50 billion dollars (and probably a few 100 billion for the federal.) Make me Governor now.
