The Blood is just starting to spill out.....Again



July 28, 2009 – Comments (8)

Less than a month into the fiscal year and Sacramento County officials are already saying there's a near $38 million budget shortfall that could get even worse.

In addition to the $9.8 million in projected welfare costs the county chose not to fund in June, sales tax,property tax and other revenue projections made just months ago are already proving to be overly optimistic. Then there's the matter of the $10 million the supervisors have said they want to restore to the Sheriff's Department.

All of that means the county -- which laid off 243 employees and eliminated numerous contracts earlier this month in order to pass a "balanced" $2 billion general fund spending plan -- could be making more big cuts in a couple months.

Not even a month has bone by........

This story will likely be repeated by city after city, county after county, parish after parish, and state after state.

The money is running out as the Zombulator causes all to bleed.

July 28 (Bloomberg) -- Station Casinos Inc., taken private by Colony Capital LLC and management in 2007, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy after failing to reach agreement with unsecured creditors on a plan for a prepackaged court restructuring.

Today’s filing, coming after months of talks, allows Station to enlist the court’s assistance in reaching an agreement with unsecured creditors on restructuring $5.7 billion of its debt, Chief Accounting Officer Tom Friel said in an interview. Since February, the company had been operating under debt forbearance while negotiated with banks and noteholders. 

  In February the company offered 10 cents to 50 cents on the dollar in secured notes and cash to holders of about $2.3 billion of bonds. The company said at the time that some secured lenders backed the plan.


SHOCKING!!!!  Who would not accept 10 cents on the dollar?

After months of little communication with the school board, the state appointee in charge of the $1.2-billion budget for the Detroit Public Schools gave a warning Tuesday night about the district’s future.

“The deficit may grow,” said Robert Bobb, emergency financial manager for DPS.

Bobb, emergency financial manager for DPS, discussed revenues with the board’s finance committee, saying that as the budget is reforecast, the district may be in more debt than the projected $259-million deficit.

Board members drilled Bobb on the state’s culpability for the district’s financial crisis, which worsened during the 1999-2005 state takeover of DPS.

There are just no easy solutions when there is no money.......

Soon you will be a criminal for not having government health care. Worse the government will have direct access (electronic link) to all of your bank accounts and can take the health care premiums plus any penalties from your accounts without warning at any time.


This will be worse than the IRS. 

Welcome to "the change we need" (Obama campaign 2008).
