Californians in the far-liberal, tax-happy, big-government state will be receiving an "inflation relief check" of more than $1,000 to offset the economic woes wreaked by the far-left Biden administration that they voted for.
Which would be hilarious if it weren't so ironic - or so economically illiterate.
Gov. Gavin Newsom's administration will be mailing the up-to-$1,050 checks as part of the $17 billion relief package the state legislature passed to try and ease the burden of record-high inflation, skyrocketing gas prices, and high housing and energy costs on his state's residents - economic problems that, ironically, were created in part by government intervention and federal stimulus checks.
The government aid package also includes a suspension of the state's gas tax on diesel but leaves in place the tax on regular gas, currently set to rise from 51 cents per gallon currently to 54 cents in July. The price of a gallon of gas in California averages $6.32 as of Monday, nearly 30% higher than the national average, CBS News reports.
The state will also reportedly be helping low-income people pay their rent and other bills amid the ever-increasing costs of goods and basic necessities.
Nothing like left-wing politicians to create a problem, then come in and claim to "help." All that remains to be seen now is just how much cake $1,000 will get you.
