We'll Pay With Crime Instead!

This is exciting. California politicians reached a deal on the state budget today. And there are NO NEW TAXES! Suck on that, reason!

Fortunately, instead of paying for this budget in taxes, we will pay for it in crime fighting costs.
In addition, tens of thousands of seniors and children would lose access to healthcare, local governments would sacrifice billions of dollars in state assistance this year and large numbers of state prisoners would have their sentences scaled back. Welfare checks would go to fewer residents, state workers would be forced to continue to take unpaid days off and new drilling for oil would be permitted off the Santa Barbara coast.
Oh, man, I can't wait to get robbed by a guy who used to be in prison but can't get welfare! Go crime!
