California is plagued by dysfunction. Ian Lovett writes:
Long known as the home of easy living, with its beaches and year-round sunshine, California is increasingly seen as a difficult place, where the government and corporate institutions can’t reliably offer basic services. Some residents are questioning whether they should leave as a result.
California has the highest gas prices in the country. Housing prices are the second-highest in the nation, triggering a statewide lack of affordable housing.
Homelessness is surging in the state’s major cities, despite billions spent by state and local governments to combat the problem. A drought, which gripped the state for more than seven years, left some towns without clean water.
Now, more than two million people have lost their power in Northern and Southern California in the past month and hundreds of thousands have evacuated their homes to avoid fire danger, a number likely to grow before the year ends.

California: “A great place to raise kids,” right?
it’s the fault of the Republicans.
No kidding. They and all of their COC and Corporate AG cronies did nothing to stop the illegals in the state for 40 years. Now they and their descendants have take over what use to be a swing state.
