San Diego spends less than half of any other large CA city on social services. This isn't just things like welfare, etc., but includes Police, Firemen, Schools, Roads...etc...

The political structure is set up to make raising taxes basically impossible (not just a partisan problem, but a structural/institutional one) and all money that IS raised is diverted into downtown development at the expense of the neighborhoods and other social services.

We demand huge government goods, and are used to getting them for free from the federal Government, but refuse to pay anything for them.
