California Politicians Love To Tax Like The French

Support for Proposition 30, the income and sales tax increase touted by Governor Jerry Brown, has fallen below the critical 50% needed for passage for the first time in the California Field Poll. With just five days to go before the election and polls showing support for Prop 30 fading, the teachers’ and other public employees’ unions are desperately spending fortunes trying to get voters to rescue their lifestyles. Unfettered by the risk of the initiative failing, Governor Brown and state politicians have increased deficit spending this year by more than the $6 billion Prop 30 might bring in. “Taxafornia” is already suffering from wealth and business flight as the third worst tax burden in the U.S, but California politicians love to tax like the French.

California Politicians Love To Tax Like The French

And as I understand it, the weather in France is similar to the weather in California.

Maybe the climate in both places makes people think they are super-beings, can solve any problem, can have anything they want.

I know whenever I go to California, I always get this "energized" feeling, almost like I can fly.

I need to come back to upstate New York to get my feet back on the ground.
