Op-ed made irrelevant claims on account of budget knowledge

Ad hominems aside, what is Ms. Rosen's own view about the trend of state support for UC? Is she expecting the state to reverse decades of declining shares of UC's budget? If so, what's the evidence for that expectation? If not, what is her proposal for ensuring that UC be able to attract, retain and compensate the finest faculty in the world while assuring Californians of affordable access to excellent education?
I would be overjoyed to be proven wrong, but my knowledge of the state budget leads me to conclude that state support for UC is more likely to decline than to increase. In the absence of compelling evidence to the contrary, isn't it incumbent on everyone interested in the welfare of UC and its mission to develop long range plans for ensuring access, affordability and excellence?
