Today on State of Affairs:

Reactions continue to pour in from California lawmakers after a budget plan put forward by President Trump earlier this week proposes some deep cuts.

Meanwhile, Republicans in the Golden State are reacting to an estimate out of the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office that says 24 fewer Americans would be covered under the GOP health plan currently on the table. 

And Snoop Dogg, AKA the Doggfather makes a clear political statement in his recent music video.

Viewer discretion is advised.
