12,744 new laws signed by Brown

12,744 new laws signed by Brown

Oct. 2, 2012

Katy Grimes: Whenever someone tells me what a lousy governor Arnold Schwarzenegger was, I remind then that at least he was a pretty good goalie. Schwarzenegger vetoed nearly 2,000 bills. It’s too bad he didn’t veto a few more… AB 32 comes to mind.

Gov. Jerry Brown’s veto percentage in 2011 was 11 percent, and 12 percent in 2012 — the lowest average percentage since Gov. Ronald Reagan’s 1967 veto rate of 13 percent.

Brown appears to be conducting a weird experiment with California, passing more laws than any of his predecessors.  Maybe he’s trying to see just how fast he can destroy the middle class with all of this bill-signing. If that’s the case, he’s in a race with the Sacramento City Council.

    “Gov. Jerry Brown’s veto percentage in 2011 was 11 percent, and 12 percent in 2012 — the lowest average percentage since Gov. Ronald Reagan’s 1967 veto rate of 13 percent.”

    This fact is very apropos my past comments about the Reagan myth vs. the facts. Ronald Reagan was always a push over for profligate legislators, especially Democrats.

    By the way, I have to grudgingly give Jesuit Jerry some kudos for vetoing several of the most noxious gun control laws sent to him by the Sacramento Gauleiters. Here in “Crazifornia” we have to console ourselves with even the most microscopic of victories.

    Regarding the Austrian steroid abuser/sexual harrasser/philanderer aka Arnold Schwartzenegger, I think you set a very low bar Katie when comparing him to either Reagan or Brown. He did an awful lot of damage, not just to the state but to what is left of the Republican brand in Kalifornia.

    OK, The chart has Clown’s veto % in 2011 @ 14+%, not 11%.

    It has Ronnie Raygun veto % at 4+% in 1967, not 13%.

    What gives????????????????

    There is no governor in this gulag, only Comrade Brown. The state will clearly tell you what to do, where to go, what to eat, where to sleep. Its over people – Kalifornsky is a gulag!
