Republican endorsement slate: "no more debt, no more taxes"

The Republican Party of San Diego County has released its official endorsement slate for local, state, and national races and propositions.

“After decades of out-of-control spending, massive debt and crushing feel-good regulations caused by government labor union bosses and unprincipled politicians it's time for Americans to take back control of their government,” reads a portion of a statement issued with the endorsement list by local party chair Tony Krvaric.

The proposition list includes 16 “no” recommendations on revenue and bond measures, ten with the note “no more debt, no more taxes” attached, and others with similar language.

Krvaric contrasts his party’s choices with those supported by the San Diego County Democratic Party, accusing Democrats of “siding with the status quo, union bosses and law breakers,” while also implying his opponents of favoring “more debt, taxes, [and] drugs.”

The tax part is verifiable, as the Democratic slate endorses all local bond measures and one of the state’s two tax proposals, opposing only Proposition 38, the “Our Children, Our Future” income tax increase pushed by activist Molly Munger, who paid $2 million to get the measure on the ballot and has provided at least $7.2 million in funding to support it.

Notably absent from the Republicans’ list of federal endorsements is one for GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney. The Democrats, predictably, endorse Barack Obama.
