Californians got the governor they chose, and as a result they are facing a 27% tax hike over the next three years. A new state budget must be presented by July 1. Courtesy of a new rule, California legislators do not have the luxury of Capitol Hill legislators. If they don’t PASS a budget by that date, they forfeit their pay. Now that’s what I’m talking about! See the video below.
Most or all of the tax hikes appear to be extending existing tax increases that were likely promised would disappear by a certain time frame, but of course have not. When you’re taxed enough already, you want those offending and abusives tax bills to go away. It’s hard to feel sorry for the beautiful and tourist rich state of California. Voters, if you want your businesses to move back, stand up to these tax and spend Democrats. We won’t bail-out your state.
A May poll from the Public Policy Institute shows that just 46 percent of likely voters support extending the tax increases, down from 54 percent in January. Source: The Daily Caller
So in November 2010 California voters sent Brown back to the Governor’s office. Two months later 54% of voters supported extending the tax increases (the same also howl at the moon), but by May 2011, only 46% of likely voters support Brown’s plan. The GOP is talkin’ TEA.
