Podcast: The Early Show

Comments Off

For a budget that most watchers thought wouldn't hold many surprises -- new and deep cuts, premised on taxes -- perhaps the biggest surprise was the timing. A surprise to Governor Jerry Brown, too.

Kevin Yamamura of the Sacramento Bee and I also discuss criticisms about the proposed new round of "trigger cuts," and use analogies from basketball to -- well -- Star Wars to describe the road ahead.
