California's Credit Card Canceled for Non-Payment, State Parks Can't Afford Toilet Paper

Print comment Post Comments
California has been without a budget for a record 86 days--meaning the state, mired down by a $19 billion deficit, can't pay its bills.

And now, the credit card account Sacramento uses to buy supplies has been canceled for non-payment.

George Skelton from the Los Angeles Times was able to get his hands on an internal e-mail from Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's Finance Department that read:

"Bottom line: Remote rural state parks will likely run out of toilet paper by early October."

"It isn't just toilet paper, it's bulk fuel for cars and trucks, it's auto parts for fixing cars and trucks, other equipment, lawn equipment, it's housekeeping supplies," said Roy Stearns with the California State parks service.

If the governor and Legislature enact a state budget and card payments are renewed, the card will be reactivated.

In the meantime, California doesn't have to be the victim of harassment. Threatening phone calls. No, it's time for the Golden State to reclaim its life and get the peace of mind it deserves!

Call now, Governor Schwarzenegger. Operators are standing by.
