My response to Jerry Brown’s budget veto: Game on again!

Thursday, June 16, 2011, 5:09 pm |

I’m glad that Governor Jerry Brown, who likes higher taxes and fees, has vetoed the Democrats’ budget bill because he either doesn’t like the way it was done or doesn’t like what it would do to his legacy.

While Democrat Controller John Chiang worries about his public image regarding whether to keep issuing legislators’ paychecks (there’s nothing in Prop. 25 that says the governor has to sign the budget bill for them to be paid), Brown’s veto means it’s “game on again” to stop higher taxes and fees extorted from California families.

On June 30, the abnormally-high sales tax and Vehicle License Fee (car tax) increases will expire. Brown doesn’t want taxes and fees to go down, but wants them extended for years. Brown said today, “We need four Republican votes and in the next several days I’m going to do everything I can — I’ll move heaven and earth — to get those votes.”

ALERT: If you know the true Power of heaven, fight against the tax-and-fee hikes of Jerry Brown and the Democrats. Right now, please again call and email Sacramento to demand “no more taxes or fees at the state or local levels!” Especially call the at-risk Republicans.

Here’s today’s SaveCalifornia.com news release responding on Brown’s veto:

Response to Governor Brown’s Budget Veto
by SaveCalifornia.com President Randy Thomasson

Sacramento, California — In response to today’s veto by Governor Jerry Brown of the Democrats’ budget bill, Randy Thomasson, president of SaveCalifornia.com, a non-profit, non-partisan statewide organization that promotes moral virtues for the common good, released the following statement:

“Jerry Brown may like higher taxes and fees, but he’s doesn’t like them in an obvious sham budget or in a way that makes him look bad. Whether his veto is for the sake of image or principle doesn’t matter as much as the fact that California families have been saved, for the time being, from more taxes and fees that take away their hard-earned money for a wasteful, greedy government to devour. We call on principled Californians to rise up and urge their state legislators — especially Republican assemblymembers and senators who can stop the Democrats’ money grab — to resist any and all tax hikes or fee hikes at the state and local levels.”

SaveCalifornia.com has identified tens of billions in government waste, and for the last several months has been calling on concerned Californians to demand an end to tax and fee hikes.

— end —

Act now: Call and email Sacramento to demand
“no more taxes or fees at the state or local levels!”
