Either those in the Secretary of State office and Attorney Generals office are mathematically illiterate—or they are scam artists. They claim a bond measure is for $15 billion, knowing that is a lie. Including interest that bond costs $27 billion. If they told the truth most would vote NO –we can afford the education failures at a cost of $27 billion.
“The California School Boards Association announced Wednesday that it and its partners will end their effort to put a $15 billion tax initiative benefiting K-12 and community colleges before voters next November. Stating it wanted to avoid the prospect of competing tax measures for education on the same ballot, the association indicated it would seek a tax in 2022 instead.
Not mentioned in this article is that on the March, 3, 2020 ballot is a $27 billion education bond (listed without interest costs at $15). It is noted that in November you will be able to kill jobs and chase companies out of State with a $12 billion tax increase.
So, following these in 2022, the same folks want ANOTHER $27 billion bond—as if we could afford all these failures. It is time to say fix—fix the school’s first. End the bigotry, hate and discrimination taught in the schools. Bring education back to schools, then we can discuss what is really needed.
