Schwarzenegger vows to veto tax and fee hikes

Monday, June 29, 2009, 3:47 pm |

We expected this. Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger says he will veto the Democrats’ “majority vote” tax and fee package. Read his statement

For those who care about the constitution, it requires a two-thirds vote of each house of the Legislature to raise revenue (whether it be taxes or fees).

My prediction is that if Republican lawmakers persevere for days or weeks in their opposition to new taxes, fees or borrowing, the tax-and-spend Democrats will be forced to agree.

Then the budget deficit will be plugged, government reforms begun, and working families protected from higher taxes.

The victory will belong to active and persistent citizens who hold Republican lawmakers accountable with calls, emails, faxes and more. Take action now.
