State Treasurer Bill Lockyer said this afternoon that he will vote for Gov. Jerry Brown's November ballot initiative to raise taxes, despite concerns about the measure's burden on California's highest-income earners.
Lockyer, who said last year that California had neared its reasonable limit for taxing the rich, told the Sacramento Press Club that the alternative -- billions of dollars in spending reductions, including to education -- is intolerable.
"I'm voting for the governor's tax proposal," said Lockyer, a Democrat. "The cuts to education if it doesn't pass are so severe that it will injure our ability to produce an informed citizenry and workforce that we need for the future of California, so I'm a 'yes' vote."
Brown proposes to raise the state sales tax and income taxes on California's highest earners.
"I worry a little bit about fairness," Lockyer said, "although when you look at the income distributions in the last 20 years and see that essentially 80 percent of the people in California have either stagnated or fallen backward, 20 percent are the folks that actually have more disposable income, maybe progressive income taxes are relevant and fair in that kind of environment."

Lockyer remained quiet about the scandal involving his wife, Nadia, who resigned from her position as an Alameda County supervisor after revelations of an affair and substance abuse.
The treasurer declined to discuss his wife's accusation he once supplied her with drugs, a claim Bill Lockyer's spokesman has previously denied.

A democrat deciding between spending cuts or tax increases...
gee - I wonder what he/she will decide?
This is California and that is the gag line of the day.
it will injure our ability to produce an informed citizenry and workforce that we need for the future of California, so I’m a ‘yes’ vote.”
Proving once again what a Lying,scumbag Socialist Lockyear is...
How do we allow someone who has such disorder in his life remain as the chief financial officer of CA? This wasn’t his wild daughter who went off on drugs and sex..it was his wife whom he supported into public office.
If you live in CA..ask your RAT friends how they feel about this. I guess they all have family that are on drugs and have big legal problems..so they feel right at home.

Duh, as State Treasurer you should know that there is no “Fairness” column on your financial statements.

Hey Bill.....if you were regularly f**king that pretty little wife of yours instead of f**king the taxpayers of California, maybe you’d keep that filly home instead of her meeting crackheads in sleazy motels.
“Hey Bill.....if you were regularly f**king that pretty little wife of yours instead of f**king the taxpayers of California, maybe youd keep that filly home instead of her meeting crackheads in sleazy motels.”
The old coot is probably unable to f**k his wife at his age. Unfortunately a RAT politician’s age doesn’t keep him from f**king the citizens of this once fine state!
Treasurer Bill has been married since April 2003 to Nadia Maria Davis (an Hispanic Native American.) Lockyer was married twice before, and has an adult daughter four years older than Nadia who is an attorney for NASA.
Lockyer and Nadia have a son, named Diego, born a couple months after they wed.
Nadia Lockyer was elected to the Alameda County Bd of Supervisors Nov 2010 but was forced out after a highly publicized extramarital affair. After Treasurer Bill gave Nadia $1.5 milllion to outspend her opponent, Nadia was elected to the Alameda County Board of Supervisors Nov 2010....and neither of them told voters Nadia was using drugs that she now says were supplied by her husband.
She was in a motel room with her paramour, whom she met in rehab, when Nadia called cops claiming he had assaulted her.
Treasurer Bill's bizarro explanation for his wife's being in a motel room---bedded down with another man...."he and his wife argued so she went to the motel to comfort her suicidal ex-boyfriend" who has a long history of involvement with the criminal justice system. Lockyer said, "her only fault is occasionally having one too many drinks."
Nadia's a full blown sex/drug/drink addict----she gets a sexual thrill being roughed up. She musta get an even bigger thrill when she took her son, Diego (I "think" the kid is Treasurer Bill's son, too) to the motel to watch her get blown.
I like the part where Nadia lied--- pretended to be the guy's lawyer----the only way she could visit him in jail "with no barriers" between them.
Bet the prison guards got an eyeful AND an earful--- Nadia in the throes of passion must be loud and profane. Hearing Nadia cursing out her flacid husband musta been a laugh riot.
She seems to love rough sex----he beat her up in the motel----and she went back for more while he was incarcerated.
Nadia's now known as "the Alameida County Open."
Somebody oughta check this out.....Dollars to donuts the sex-starved Mrs Lockyer put the drug-addled boyfriend on the county payroll in a no-show job.....or got him no-bid inflated county building contracts.
In any event, the guy is getting paid for his "sexual services:"
<><> six-figure county paychecks,
<><>credit cards, expense accounts,
<><> tax-subsidized travel to "county conferences at resort motels" with Mrs L,
<><> tax-paid cars, bonuses, benefits, and other tax-paid subsidies.
ARE THE LOCKYER'S DOUBLE BILLING TAXPAYERS ? Last week, a man who ID'ed himsef as State Treasurer Lockyer, drove up to the motel where Nadia and her lover bedded down---and this week, Lockyer returned.
Lockyer asked the motel manager for a receipt from Nadia's motel stays saying he needed a receipt so he could "write it off."
Write it off? Nadia surely put the motel stays on her county expense account. And now State Treasurer Lockyer (also on an expense account) intends to have taxpayers pay for his wife's sex romp?
Castro Valley Inn.
Treasurer Bill confirmed he went to the Castro Valley Inn twice. Then admitted he wanted to obtain information to help him learn the truth about what was happening in his life.....
Okay, Bill, you want the truth about what's happening in your life?
Permit me to spell it out for you.
Firstly your wife is a whore and a liar---who will do anything for a roll in the hay, and she got herself a sex partner who plays rough.
She is...quite the piece of work, ain’t she?
Sure would like to be a fly on the wall in the Lockyer residence——must be a riot.
My question is......if he ain’t gettin’ any, and knowing her for the drunken, druggie slut that she is.....why on earth does he keep this little bitch-in-heat around?
Good question——but you must factor in that Treasurer Bill is a politician-—he knows nothing else.
He has his eye on another office (can’t run again for Treasurer) so he has to keep the little woman in-house to keep an eye on her.
She’ll bolt in a nanosecond when the boyfriend calls her from the motel for a sex romp.
Man, the media would be all over that one....not a very good story for an election....not even for dog catcher (/snix).
“My husband’s 70 years old. You figure it out.””
Well, he must be a wimp. I am 72 and don’t have that problem!
And there we thought that only the Republicans were the limp dicks!
