You know things are bad when Hollywood liberals are asking California for a tax break.

Film Works, an entertainment-industry advocate organization, recently launched an online petition asking California’s film and TV enthusiasts to lobby lawmakers to create greater incentives for production to stay within state borders.

**SNIP**

“If policymakers fail to make our state more competitive, the film industry in California will face the same fate as other industries, including aerospace, which resulted in hundreds of thousands of jobs permanently leaving California for other states.”

Typical libs, they want you to pay HIGHER taxes, but not them. Liberals actors, STFU and pay what you want us to pay. If you want LESS taxes, tell those morons in Sacramento to lower all taxes.

‘Wondered when the glitteratti would start it’s formal threats against Cali. It only preaches economic justice for people as long as they are not the ones picking up the tab.

I’m shocked, shocked to find Hollywood liberals say one thing (proclaim that they would love to pay more taxes) and do another (lobby for tax breaks for themselves).
