CA Democrats rhetoric doesn't match their actions

the democrat governor, Jerry Brown, vetoed the budget immediately, almost like he knew he was going to do it before the budget was voted on yesterday, like they had a deal or something?
no, no, our politicians in sacramento would not do something so deceptive and cynical like pass a budget on democrat votes only and ask the democrat governor to veto it, just so they could continue getting paid?
we know that Prop 25 was set up so that all the democrats had to do was pass a budget with a simple majority to preserve their pay, they do not have to pass something the governor will approve!
democrats SAID that a tax increase would require republican votes, but this budget increased sales taxes and DMV fees and other taxes
democrats SAID that the tax increases they originally passed a few years ago were temporary, but then changed the tune to say they needed Republican votes to extend those taxes as well
we see what we can depend on the democrats for, tricks, gimmicks, and smoke and mirrors -- as well as higher taxes -- in every budget.
