How bout that quarter % sales tax hike...pretty sure that falls on ALL of us!! Also these hikes are for 7 years. if the dollar crashes or we have inflation a couple making $250k will be middle class at best and we are stuck w/ those hikes. Hell no on tax hikes!!!

Google the city or Hercules. see the story today about the 50 million dollars a politician stole in redevelopment dollars.

Not surprised david Rice always seem to tow the line for special interests.

The state JUST reinstated redevelopment except now there is even less accountabilty and no blight requirement. oppose SB 1156

the state just set up CA Cap and Trade as an anonymous shell corporation to avoid open govt laws so they can give the 50-100 billion dollars to special interests.

This is how they are writing laws NOW exempting themselves from open govt laws as in no reforms.

Want to see what the California Budget Project is missing from their Proposition 30 analysis? Click below.

"California Proposition 30: Governor Jerry Brown's Big-Government Tax Hike"


  • How do California's existing INCOME TAX rates and Proposition 30 tax hikes compare to income tax rates in the other 49 states?

Why does the CPB analysis ignore Proposition 63? How does that affect California's tax rates.

How do California's existing state SALES TAX rates and Proposition 30 tax hikes compare to state sales tax rates in the other 49 states?

From whom does California derive most of its income tax revenues?

Whose incomes dropped the most, and consequently their taxes, after the 2008 subprime mortgage crisis?

How do California's tax rates affect our business climate?

How does are tax and business climate affect California's unemployment rate?

Who are the biggest funders of Proposition 30?

The recent executive director of California Budget Project worked for which major funder of Proposition 30? Okay, that not on the link above. SEIU is one of the major funders of Proposition 30. Jean Ross, who was executive director of CBP until March, worked for SEIU.

I doubt anything will be done about this illegal activity. The Dems allow corruption if it favors them.

Just as a point of reference ...

CHART: Current California Income Tax Brackets/Rates and the Proposition 30 and Proposition 38 Tax hikes Compared to the MAXIMUM Income Tax Rate in 49 Other States

Proposition 30 also includes a hike in the state sales tax. Proposition 38 has no such increase.

CHART: California State Sales Tax Rate and Proposition 30 Increases Compared to the State Sales Tax Rate in 49 Other States

QUESTION: If either Proposition 30 or 38 is passed, what affect do you think it will have on California's business climate and our high unemployment rate (bother are currently ranked 3rd worst in the nation)?
