I don't want overpriced services and to fund an extreme welfare state. Maybe you could elaborate on the topic here and highlight information/data that:

- compares the cost of CA's public services of that from other states
- the claim (as highlighted in Contra Costa Times) that CA represents 12% of the nation's population but 30% of welfare recipients

If you did this, people miight become more educated on the dynamic that inefficiencies are starving investments in our future (education, infrastructure, etc.).
