Brown also called a special session of the Legislature for implementation of President Obama’s healthcare law, “to deal with those issues that must be decided quickly if California is to get the Affordable Care Act started by next January.”

    I live in California but I’m certainly glad I’m not a resident of such a left wing irresponsible state with “leaders” such as the Governor and Diane Feinstein. You have done what you think was impossible but you have failed the majority of folks you supposedly represent. California is a horrible place to lice regarding everything from a to z. Nice place to live, but with your taxes, left wing oppression and failure to change for the better you will soon find that residents and businesses alike are tired of your BS and move elsewhere to escape your almost totaltarian oppression. Good luck!!!! FAIL!!
