Jarvis group's new ad calls Jerry Brown's tax bid street robbery
SacBee: Capitol Alert ^ | 8/20/12 | David Siders

The Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association is up with its second radio advertisement against Gov. Jerry Brown's November ballot initiative to raise taxes, comparing Brown's tax campaign to street robbery.

"Hey, lady, hand over your purse or the schools get it," a voice at the top of the ad says.

The ad, an issue-advocacy spot running statewide beginning today, comes as the Democratic governor begins in earnest to campaign for Proposition 30, his proposal to raise the state sales tax and income taxes on California's highest earners. The Democratic governor has characterized the election as a choice between higher taxes and $5.4 billion in cuts to schools and community colleges.

The taxpayers group declined to say how much money is behind the ad, which is replacing a previous one that hammered "Sacramento politicians" for their approval of California's $68 billion high-speed rail project.

The current ad, in addition to criticizing the rail project, lambastes pay raises given to more than 900 legislative employees this year and the disclosure of nearly $54 million in hidden parks money.

Jerry talks to his dog Sutter......

“Sutter, these radio ads are hurting us. What should we do?”


“That’s it! We’ll run our own radio ads!”

The radio ad......

“Hi, this is Jerry Brown. As you can see on this board.....”

Somebody got the “Pass this tax or we’ll kill this dog” picture?

A few days ago on FR, there was a thread that stated that ‘high end earners’ are leaving California at the rate of 2000 per week.
