Sacramento Report: The Insulated State of California

If California was not part of the raw vote, Trump would have won the popular vote by over 2,000,000 votes.  This is a State where the legislature does nothing about a $991 billion unfunded pension liability, a school district (LAUSD) with only a 54% graduation rate—but allowed to lie and claim it is 75%–by giving students phony, unearned credits.  California is a failed State.

“Jessica Bulman-Pozen, a professor at Columbia Law School who studies the interaction of states and the federal government, said there are plenty of things California could do to protect the environment, enhance financial regulations and provide expansive access to health insurance – even if the Trump administration rolls back the Obama administration laws that do so now.

But Bulman-Pozen cautioned that a Trump administration could also pass laws that preempt the state from taking certain measures to insulate itself, since federal law literally trumps state law. That would fly in the face of Republican advocacy for “state’s rights,” but would ensure the new president’s agenda isn’t undermined by the nation’s most populous state.”

Hopefully Trump will save California from its suicide attempt.  What do you think?
