California announced today that there will be a 30-day delay on tax refunds because the state is broke.
From the AP:
Controller John Chiang said Friday he must delay $3.7 billion in payments next month because lawmakers have failed to address California’s growing deficit.
Let me get this straight…
- A tax refund is money that you owe us because we overpaid you on taxes.
- You failed to do the job that we, the taxpayers, elected you to do.
- You now want to keep our money a little longer.
Anyone else find this outrageous? Anyone else find this to be a complete failure? Anyone else ready to march from Los Angeles to Sacramento and fire everyone?
