Opinion: Democrats Oppose Some of Brown’s Budget Cuts
Ventura County Star columnist Thomas Elias writes that even though "legislative Democrats have large majorities in both the Assembly and state Senate," it "doesn't mean [they] will accept every budget proposal" that Gov. Jerry Brown (D) issues. With his proposed fiscal year 2012-2013 budget plan, Brown is "tweaking the noses of well-established core Democratic constituencies, and they don't like it," according to Elias.
