California isn’t just broke — it is billions in the hole. The state has the third-highest income tax, the highest sales tax and the highest gas tax in the country, and Gov. Jerry Brown is pushing for more tax increases. Businesses and middle class people are leaving California in record numbers because of over-taxation and over-regulation. Economic analysts say overspending by incompetent politicians is the cause of California’s fiasco.
We have a governor who has approved the bullet train to nowhere at a cost of upwards of $100 billion with interest and overruns, which will happen with what goes on in the state government.
Gov. “Moonbeam” Brown wants to increase the sales tax and the upper tax on individuals for his out-of-touch ideas — he thinks this will help balance the deficit. All he wants to do is increase the amount of money collected so he can promote his agenda and keep on spending. This is not a plan for fiscal discipline, it’s another attempt for the liberal state Assembly to keep up its spending, which is out of control.
I urge everyone to vote no on any ballot measure to increase the amount of money to the state, for any reason. Let them work with what we have, and let them make the tough decisions they should have made years ago. This is not a problem the people of this state made. It’s the politicians who think we are so stupid that they can strap the California residents every time there is a fiscal issue they do not want to deal with. Vote no on all money issues this election.
