California and Reconstruction

July 06, 2009

I see that California has an intractable budget crisis.

It may even be that California's problems are halting a stage-3 bailout for the other state governments.

Perhaps the "republican government" clause of the Constitution could be used to order California to write a new Constitution that does not include the 2/3 rule.

That might be a bit heavy-handed. But it might also be the only thing that could work.
