The Reality of Bush-Arnold Era Shock Doctrine in California

(Originally at OC Progressive)

We need not look further than The Sacramento Bee's interactive map of California job losses to see how bad policies in Washington and Sacramento have really made an impact... In a negative way. Fortunately, there may be signs of life in other parts of the country as President Obama's stimulus spending finally starts to kick in here in Nevada and elsewhere. However, the federal stimulus will likely be offset next door in California by even more massive cuts to the very social safety net that's badly needed to survive a recession.

And with "Arnold Antoinette" pushing for even more brutal slashing of social safety net, California may very well face even worse economic conditions... And threatens to drag Nevada and the entire rest of the nation further down with it.
