To be honest 1/4 cent up sales tax does not bother us too much, as we only purchase what is necessary anyway, and are able to get around it occasionally anyway.
BTW, my heating and cooling bills are extremely low due to the Mediterranean style weather.
Just a little increase; just like the frog in the pot set to boil. This is not the first sales tax increase. You have to starve the addiction in sacramento and let the pols cut spending.
When gas prices go up, sacramento will have a windfall and they will provide more public services counter to having people show individual responsibility.
The system is cyclical just like the bribery inherent in public unions campaign contributions to those with whom the negotiate their contracts.
We will not be able to do this in our lifetime. When people cote higher taxes to get more beanies, we are doomed.
Cal is bankrupt and continues on the same course. We cannot pay enough taxes o do what the dems want to do.
We are paying 12-16 billion a year in services to illegals and making it easier all the time for them to be here.
