The Obvious Message of Jerry Brown’s Pension: He’s up to his armpits in the cookie jar, and that’s being conservative!

A kerfuffle surrounding a clandestine Jerry Brown pension is generating a lot of Drudge action on this lazy August Friday. Servers at the Watchdog blog (Click here to read the story) of the Orange Country Register that broke the story are bogging down. Keep clicking on it. The report is amusing. In fact, it’s a bit more than that….

It seems California’s one-time and now aspiring governor Jerry Brown has been drawing down a healthy pension from the state — perhaps double-dipping — causing a mild embarrassment to Jerry that could grow into something more than mild. At the moment he is locked in a tight race with Meg Whitman.

(This is just the tip of the iceberg, and yes, CA is the Titanic–but we’re not sunk–yet.)

Greg Scandlen on Crunch Time in Congress on Your Health Care & Eric Singer on Congress Created Mortage/Credit Crisis Redux: Saturday Oct 10, 2009



Join me on the air, Saturday at 10 AM PT on CRN Digital Talk Radio, & on
CRNtalk.com Channel 1
Call in number: 1-800-336-2225
On the program, Richard Rider, Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association 2009 Taxpayer Hero of the Year, talks about the new-hot-off-the-presses study commissioned by the San Diego Taxpayers Association, which shows City Pension Costs Linked to Higher Taxes.

Greg Scandlen, Founder and Director of Consumers for Health Care Choices, an expert on Health Care policy, joins us to talk about Crunch Time in Congress: The Senate Finance Committee will be voting on its bill next week, then Harry Reid and the White House will cobble together a merger of the two Senate committee bills and take it to the floor. House leadership is already working on a bill to take to the floor and will probably have a vote in the next two weeks. Whatever else they do, it will certainly include:

* A mandate that you must buy health insurance and be fined or even jailed if you fail to comply.
* A major increase in the deficit to pay for all the new subsidies and bureaucracies.
* Rationing of services as determined by a federal committee.
* Increased taxes on everyone involved in health care.
* More regulation of doctors and hospitals.

Eric Singer
of “Congressional Effect Fund” talks with us about Congress’s plan to reenergize the the Community Reinvestment Act–the same act that brought us the housing market bubble, and credit market meltdown. It promises to usher in the next mortgage and credit crisis in the name of “helping to stimulate” the economy. With the Government buying up mortgages how do we really know the value of the market or how it’s doing?

The lines are open. I hope you put us on your calendar, tune in, give us a call, and join us for hot talk radio, Saturday at 10AM PT, one fast hour on CRN, Channel 1
