California’s Coming Tax Tsunami

 

.

By Stephen Frank,  California Political News and Views

The Supreme Leader, Regressive Dem Guv Newsom is demanding one trillion from the Feds to “save” the States (actually that is to cover up the corruption and mismanagement of pension plans, spending to protect illegal aliens and more).  President Trump is going to want a crack down on the corruption and abuse of power of the States.  That means ending regulations that kill jobs—like AB 5 and the Newsom plan to take water from farmers.  Why give money to Newsom who signs secret contracts with firms owned or controlled by the Chinese Communist Party and on the U.S. blacklist.

“For .years, California lawmakers have adopted profligate budgets that simply do not serve most Californians. Govern for California, a nonpartisan research center that studies California governance, recently calculated the growth in several of the state’s major budget categories between fiscal years 2010–11 and 2018–19.

During this period, state tax revenue rose 65 percent, reflecting both state economic growth after the financial crisis and inflation. But the extremely skewed growth across major budget categories presented below highlights the current priorities of state lawmakers and the very poor choices of their predecessors.

K–12 education and community college spending rose about 51 percent, considerably less than revenue. But spending on the UC system, arguably the world’s best public university system, rose just 27 percent, which was only slightly ahead of inflation. And spending on the state’s court system, which is a mainstay of any democratic society, rose just one percent.  

For years, California lawmakers have adopted profligate budgets that simply do not serve most Californians. Govern for California, a nonpartisan research center that studies California governance, recently calculated the growth in several of the state’s major budget categories between fiscal years 2010–11 and 2018–19.”

I hope the Democrats demand tax increases—maybe the public that has had constitutional rights killed by Newsom, will understand these folks are making California a Third World State.  It is in the hands of the voters—lets vote wisely.

Californians don’t need any more taxes levied on them, what we need is, get rid of the crooked democrat politicians, and elect republican with common sense politicians that will put USA citizens first, and make our great state of California Great Again.
