Newsom says federal government has ’ethical obligation’ to send states funding

California Gov. Newsom said that the $54B budget deficit the state is facing is a direct result of the impact from the pandemic and not because of existing financial troubles. He said the federal lawmakers have a ’moral’ and ’ethical’ obligation to provide relief to states amid the pandemic. ’ We’re not looking for charity. It is incumbent upon the federal govt to help support these states.’

Newsom is a petulant child: "You have to keep giving me money. It's none of your business how I'll spend it."

Funny, California has a bigger economy than Texas and higher taxes, so how is it Texas runs at a surplus usually, but California keeps digging a deficit hole?

The citizens of California have an "ethical obligation" to replace their governor and any other government agent who thinks the Bill of Rights are optional. Oh, and the citizens of every other state and federal government as well. It's up to US to drain the swamp, not politicians.

Ummm no, your budget deficit is not because of this virus. It is because CA, like all leftist havens, spend more than they can afford on bad social programs. That is your fault, fix it yourself. (Hint driving companies like Tesla away will not help.)

Hey governor, don't we have the world's fifth largest economy? Surely Feinstein and Harris didn't leisurely give it all to the feds.

Newsom you have the moral obligation to clean up your own mess that you made of California. Pre-corona, California was already broken financially thanks to your incompetence, now you demand the goverment to bail the state out, clean up your mess and line your pockets. I'm a Californian and I hope they give you the "bird" for trying to take advantage of a crisis, and I will definitely remember your ass in November.

A leftist thinking they're owed government handouts, what else is new? How about this, let Californians go back to work and get on with their lives and generate some tax revenue, then stop giving money to junkies, slackers, and illegal immigrants. I bet that helps.

I think Gorgeous Gavin has an ethical obligation to let the federal government audit Calunicornia if he wants federal relief.

The federal government has a moral obligation to tell California to shove it. They’ve been overspending for decades and the rest of the country should not be footing the bill for California’s welfare state.

I mean he has a point it is "ETHICAL" to give supports to those who are strugling, but It is not moraly correct to bail out someone else without repriminding the individual or leaving him to the same again and again and again.

I really don't know what the posters thus far think Trump's job is supposed to be. Trump told The States to look anywhere but his Administration for coordination and strategy. Trump must think FEMA stands for "Fleece Everyone's Medical Attainment". Trump had FEMA poach PPE and ventilators from frontline Blue States. Which he then gave to low demand Purple States.

Looks like states are broke the national debt is in orbit, blaming either party is correct as the song goes welcome to the machine, it never worked. Take a side or take a seat the ride is asleep. Be nice to people it’s contagious. Best JG
