SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California Gov. Jerry Brown says he is concerned the deep partisanship on display in the nation's capital during the debate over raising the federal debt limit reflects a larger political crisis for the nation.
The Democratic governor said in an interview Tuesday that his attempts to negotiate a bipartisan state budget earlier this year were characterized by the same level of intransigence in the Republican Party that he observed in Congress.
The governor signed a state spending plan last month based primarily on spending cuts after it was passed by majority Democrats without Republican support.
Brown says the Republican Party's stance on taxes and government spending has made it nearly impossible to forge compromises. Brown, who first served as governor from 1975 to 1983, called the change "ominous."
