Pass this and that great sucking sound will be a tsunami with a mag afire of 10x Indonesia tsunami.
Notice how this bill would not affect criminally-rich politicians like Nasty Pelosi, Baba Boxer or Didi Feinstein?
And the government was outraged by it.
And the government created all kinds of regulations and reforms.
And the government altered the tax policy.
And the government altered the tax policy again.
The situation got worse?????
Maybe the government should get more involved, make more reforms, and alter the tax policy. Again.
We in Texas applaude this law and truly hope that it is enacted into law and signed by the Governor.
I work for a movie studio and my rate of pay is determined by a union contract. Does Reich propose that such contracts be violated, because good luck with that.
Let’s see... who is the person who makes decisions about where a company is physically headquartered? Anyone?
Actually, I am now just hoping that the state of California-at-large just goes ahead and names themselves a prefect of Mexico or however that all works.
Just give it all back to them. Lock, stock and barrel (and liberals, and illegals, foreigner sheisters, et al).
I’ll gladly take two less Senators, and a butt load fewer Democrats, and an even bigger butt load of less welfare,SNAP, SSI, SSDI, Section 8, EITC, and a host of fewer House Congressmen in that bargain.
China can just shuttle their crap for us on up to Seattle or somewhere.
Just give it back and be done with it. It isn’t worth saving any more.

The good news? I will live to see the day CA won’t have the revenue to support their utopian level of regulation.
Texas, Oklahoma and similar low tax states are probably using their lobbyists to get the dream bill for them passed.
I propose alternate legislation - No congressman or senator is allowed to become 30 times wealthier than he or she was upon taking office.
I’m sure Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi would be a big supporters. /s
the ‘economic blackholers’ sucking up massive amounts of taxdollars AND contributing NOTHING
I prefer Baba Bouncer, Re the House check kiting and banking scandal.
Clearly a violation of the 16th Amendment
“The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, FROM WHATEVER SOURCE DERIVED, without apportionment among the several States, and without regard to any census or enumeration.”
States cannot place limits on incomes & sources as it usurps the taxing power passed by Congress as to incomes and sources.
First thing I was thinking of was Toyota too.
We’re going to run out of room here in Texas for all these high-paying jobs if California keeps driving them out.
