No “need” for new taxes in California

Monday, January 9, 2012, 4:38 pm |

Liberal newspapers like the San Francisco Chronicle are serving as mouthpieces for Governor Jerry Brown, the Democrat politicians, and the government union bosses. Together, they’re claiming only “two choices” in solving California’s state budget mess (created by Democrat state legislators, who have controlled the State Legislature for more than 40 years now).

Writes the Chronicle, “Gov. Jerry Brown’s budget plan released last week poses a stark choice for Californians: approve a five-year $35 billion tax increase in November or watch the hatchet drop on public school funding – with cuts so deep the school year could be shortened by almost a month.”

But no, there aren’t just two choices. The third way to solve the chronic state budget mess is to eliminate TENS OF BILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN ANNUAL WASTE, as outlined in SaveCalifornia.com’s Waste Report.

Remember, most of the time, a “temporary tax” isn’t temporary. People get used to it, the bureaucracy says they will always need it, and liberal politicians say they will hurt you with service cuts unless you extend the tax.

And a higher tax bite upon the wealthy means they, as the most mobile of all Americans, can easily move just across the border to Nevada or Arizona, leaving the State of California with less revenue than before.

Finally, “taxing the rich” means punishing job creators. This is exactly opposite of what our Founding Fathers wanted, and means socialism further tramples free enterprise and government dependency replaces the work ethic.

So you see, there is no “need” to raise taxes in California
, which would do more harm to family finances, job creation and sustaining, and the economy as a whole.

ACTION: Please plan to vote NO on Jerry Brown’s tax hikes, should he gather enough signatures to qualify his initiative for the November ballot. But right now, use our 2-page printable report to inform your friends and neighbors that TENS OF BILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN ANNUAL WASTE should be eliminated instead.

When they had all had enough to eat, he said to his disciples,
“Gather the pieces that are left over. Let nothing be wasted.”

John 6:12 NIV
