Lol. You can’t make this stuff up. As the logic has gone, whatever Trump is for, the Democratic Socialist Party (DSP) is against. And many people don’t think this is about the election? Really?

The DSP put together a budget debt of $3 Trillion and the Republicans (to be fair a very large number of the Republicans in Congress have become Mitt Romney RINO’s), agreed on $1 Trillion. Where did Gavin think that would have placed him? He has self-admitted Dyslexia, and explains he has difficulty with numbers. No kidding. Can he get his $1 Billion back from the bankrupt auto maker in China for those magic masks? Can he get the $600 Million back for the illegal alien business owners. Can he get BLM and Antifa to poney up for all the destruction in the state they caused that we taxpayers will pay for? Can he get back the millions spent at relocating the homeless to high cost hotels? Can he get back the millions spent on tens of thousands of ‘trackers’? His Dyslexia probably is responsible for those decisions, not to mention, the screw up in data reporting causing his ‘Angle’ to leave abruptly.

No, he wants, as all Blue States, for the taxpayers of the country to cover his decisions. Peachy?

Hey Gavin, perhaps it’s time to open the state and let people get back to work. Poverty kills, besides being very expensive. What a team Biden would make- our Governor struggling with math and the President burdened with Alzheimer’s. And, let me be perfectly clear- these diseases are no laughing matter- the DSP would not be that kind if the shoe were on the other foot. They have already proven that.

"The state would have to make sharp cuts to public services to foot that bill, Newsom said."

Here's what you cut, Gavin (I slept with my best friends wife) Newsom:

1. Yours, every state senator and congress-person and top bureaucrats SALARY
2. Programs for Illegal immigrants. All of them.
3. Get your procurement bureaucracy streamlined and functioning i.e., cut the waste
4. Cuts in waste and management at CALTRANS
5. Bullet train to nowhere
6. Open up the economy

Start there, pal.

This Governor is the BIGGEST scumbag.
