Dan Haul, El Dorado Hills "That budget didn't work. Do the math. It was full of tricks. Rejecting it was right."
David Allen, El Dorado Hills "I was surprised. He's been very no-nonsense. I'm waiting for what's next. As an educator. I hope there's no cuts to school funding."
Jeri Wenger, El Dorado Hills "It's great. That budget was a cowardly way for them to keep getting paid. The Republicans have no consideration for the people, and need to pass the tax extension. We're looking at a $9.6 billion budget gap. The Democrats have made a good faith effort in their cuts. Its time for the Republicans to step up and stop hiding behind their biases."
John Leichty, El Dorado Hills "It is what it is. I'm not a Democrat, but I agree with Brown's rejection. He only rejected about 10 percent of it, including the tax raises. He was smart to reject it. It would have wound up in court."
Tom Nieman, Cameron Park "Good for him. It's time for the Republicans to vote to increase taxes. The Republicans need to force the Dems to the table. I'm a Republican, but I want to see the Democrats come to the table."
