Kali Budget fix

My advice ... just declare bankruptcy and be done with it.

Judge could seize $8 billion from Calif. treasury

SACRAMENTO – The court-appointed receiver in charge of California's inmate health care system on Wednesday asked a judge to seize $8 billion from the state's cash-strapped treasury over the next five years.

Receiver Clark Kelso said he needs the money to build new medical units for 10,000 sick or mentally ill inmates.

Kelso also asked the judge to hold Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and state Controller John Chiang in contempt of court for refusing to allocate the money.

The request to U.S. District Judge Thelton Henderson in San Francisco comes as lawmakers remain at odds over how to cope with California's $15.2 billion deficit seven weeks after the start of the fiscal year.

In 2006, a federal judge declared the health care system in California's 33 state prisons so poor that it violates inmates' constitutional rights.

Kelso is overseeing the reforms that are supposed to correct years of neglect and inadequate treatment. He asked the judge to seize the money only after the state Senate failed twice to pass a borrowing plan that would spread the cost of building the medical units.

He wants $6 billion for new prison health care centers and $2 billion for improving existing ones.

the welfare state...

Chris Patterson, a spokesman for the California Primary Care Association, which represents 65 free clinics serving four million patients statewide, said some members were considering layoffs, service cutbacks or worse.

The association has set up a $23.8 million fund for clinics in financial trouble. But Mr. Patterson said: “We are on the brink. Some of these places are days away from deciding whether to stay open.”
