6:35 pm
away. i thought when this budget crisis affects how we live our life, that is when people will step up. when will people grab the pitch forks? >> reporter: if you think about it, most of the constituency involved are powerless people. people in retirement homes and nursing homes that the state helped subsidize. kids in the schools. the smalltime vendors are not organized. if you think about it, it is people on the margins who are least powerful who have the least to say and they are the ones who are most affected. only when people begin to see long-term the dmv situations you described happen again and again do they start to get their dander up but you know what? the fuse is very long. >> education. what's been happening in the schools has been happening for years and still that affects a good chunk of the population. we see some rallies but short of
6:36 pm
election day, you don't see anybody advocating for systemic change. >> and in this case we really have two problems. worst than ever we have the institutional problem and that has to do with that two-thirds vote we talk about that is required for the budget. it's almost impossible to get a two-thirds vote. then you have the political problem and that has to do with the fact that democrats quite frankly say we trimmed $60 billion last year. that was more than trimming. that was massive cutting. we have no more to trim without hurting people who are hurt the most. republicans say guess what? we're not going raise taxes. when the low hanging and mid hanging fruit has been taken away, you've got to really reach. as you reach, there's a lot of pain for one side or the other. >> let's talk pain. let's talk consequences. the governor keeps saying we lose $63 million a day that we don't have a budget. whether you quibble with that number or not, we're billions in the hole and it's going to have to be made up somehow. >> that figure is funny because
6:37 pm
that's money we would be paying no matter what. we'll pay once we get the budget. $20 billion hole on top of the $60 billion hole last year. there are short-term consequences. schools don't get money they are supposed to get. vendors not getting paid. college students not getting grants they need so they can't go to school. those are short-term consequences. what we're waiting to see are the long-term consequence. what's going to happen november 2nd? how many of these legislators who might have been safe won't be safe? how will it affect the governor's race given we have candidates brown on one side and whitman on the other arguing so differently as to what should be done? the consequences long-term will be felt but not until november 2nd and until then we have to wait. >> once those long-term consequences are felt, you say we should have done something about this a while ago. >> would have, could have, should have is the way we work in california. >> thank you very much, larry. >> thank you, gentlemen. a passenger video camera was
