The unions are now backing Jerry Browns proposal to put tax increases on the ballot. All repubs in state senate firmly against it. The public unions will push it though because they know all that money will go to there pensions. Not sure Brown can swing it. If he doesn't get it by a vote I think he has to do it through things like a gas tax.

Best case scenario would be calif avoids bankruptcy by the unions negotiating a decrease to there pensions and bennies after retirement.

Another smart move would be to raise the retirement age of public union employees and make them have to work longer.
