Jerry Brown Checks State of California Into Rehab

Los Angeles, California--After being busted for racking up tens of billions of dollars in debt above the already-existing $500 billion in unfunded public pension liabilties held by the government, Governor Jerry Brown has checked the entire State of California into rehab.

Brown was caught in the state Capitol with a bevy of environmentalists, lawyers, and public sector unions.

"He thought the prospects were poor that a Republican-controlled U.S. House of Representatives would be willing to bail him and his state out," said a Brown spokesperson. "Voluntarily submitting to rehab was the only alternative."
