13 San Francisco Chronicle op-ed piece that "we have to reduce spending." The San Francisco supervisors are at least talking about new revenue sources, but polls show that will be a hard sell.
Why do the polls show that? Because people like Newsom and to some extent, the supervisors aren't using their bully pulpits to change the tone of the discussion, to make the case for economic sanity, to challenge the demented wisdom that's brought us to this nightmare.
That has to change, now, or there will be no way out. *
