On California's supposedly insurmountable deficit

California's supposedly insurmountable deficit...
...amounts to about $1,000 a year per each of its 38 million citizens. Should not be as REPUBLICAN governor Arnold seems determined that even the very poorest and most destitute can afford to lose $1000 a year in food and rent welfare benefits as their share of the solution: an almost exactly equal per capita share. What about the rest of our good citizens; are they willing to pony up for what their state spends?

["Together the cuts would eliminate $1.324 billion in grant payments to more than 1.3 million Californians between May 2009 and June 2010."]
