California suffering under one-party rule

They say, as California goes, so goes the nation. It’s a haunting thought. In his new book, “Taxifornia: Liberals’ Laboratory to Bankrupt America,” former Dana Point Councilman James V. Lacy paints a troubling picture of California as an overregulated, one-party state that operates at the behest of public-sector unions.

The book is the latest in a long line of recent texts chronicling the downward spiral that has befallen the Golden State and certainly doesn’t pull any punches. At 256 pages, the book is a quick read but a trying task for those who care about the state.

Mr. Lacy is a third-generation Californian who served as an official in the Reagan and George H.W. Bush administrations, as well as an aide to the late anti-tax activist Howard Jarvis, the mastermind behind property tax-limiting Proposition 13 in 1978. Mr. Lacy’s solid knowledge of state issues make it evident he is acutely aware of problems laid out before California.
