It was Arnold of all people who was forward-thinking enough to sign legislation funding the mobile hospitals and emergency healthcare equipment stockpile to prepare the state for a pandemic.

And Jerry Brown got rid of it, probably to give more money to public employee unions and illegals.

I'm surprise the LAT is even reporting on this.

California has a state pension crisis. One of the rare crisis the left doesn't use. They hide this one because they cannot hurt conservatives with it. The state is in meltdown, but desperately covers it up with lies. The streets are crawling with homeless and trash everywhere (except where the useful idiot-Celebs and politicians' mansions and vacation homes are)

Welcome to the problems in IL as well. Unions and pensions are destroying our state.

Govt employees must be switched from pensions to 401k's. For the sake of our kids' and grandkids' future!!!

Government retirement has been changed to be very... unprofitable for the employee, assuming you've been hired after 2013.

Basically, 4-5% of your annual wage is 'paid back' into a mandatory 'retirement fund'. Then, if you manage to survive until age 62 and retire from government work, you get 1% of your annual wage back per year for each year you worked.

Basically, factoring in any interest you could have been earning on that money for all those years you worked, you have to survive at least 7-9 years after retiring to 'break even'.

So, yeah, the government retirement system's already changed. Right now, it's waiting for it to propagate through the entire workforce.

No you got it all wrong! Didn’t you read the story! Jerry Brown was just a “fiscally minded Democratic governor.”

That is because he is a reprogrammed T800 and knew Judgement day was coming. It was all in preparation for John Connor to arrive, but then Skynet sent in the latest models of robotic NPCs and Soros5000 to ruin his plans.

No - Coronavirus, aka WUHAN CHINESE COMMUNIST RED DEATH™, is the ChiCom Skynet™, which is not as good as ours. Ours is great. You've never seen a Skynet™ like ours. It's the greatest Skynet™ the world has ever seen, or will ever see!

Unfortunately he allowed for Proposition 14 on the ballot (Jungle Primaries), which gave us a Dem Super Majority.

Given that CA is so earthquake prone I’m surprised they didn’t already have something like this decades prior.
