As the recall vote on Gov. Gavin Newsom nears, he is countering by pushing a $100 billion relief/restoration plan for the state of California. Breaking down the numbers, that includes $5.2 billion for residents who couldn’t pay rent during the coronavirus shutdown and another $2 billion for water and power bills. Then there’s the icing on the cake–$12 billion for middle-class Californians as a kickback!
All this for a state that’s running a hefty surplus and didn’t need a bailout. Nevertheless, Newsom is giving it all away as the recall election draws closer. The “Right Angle” triumvirate of Bill Whittle, Scott Ott and Stephen Green discuss Newsom’s handout.
