Republican stonewalling won't close the state budget gap
The GOP's opposition to letting voters decide on Gov. Brown's proposal to extend tax hikes looks less like an expression of their certitude that his plan would fail than a sign of their fears that it would pass.
The role that Republicans in the Legislature play in the great scheme of California government is becoming harder and harder to discern.
They do not legislate; neither do they allow the people of California to legislate at the ballot box. The Republicans are giving negation a bad name.
