Poll: Road Repair Law Could Be Political Liability for California Democrats


Will the $52 billion tax increase passed by the legislative Democrat and one Republican, Senator Anthony Cannella for roads—and as we found out—“social justice projects”.  Yes, 30% of the money meant for roads is going for non transportation needs—plus part of the money will be spent on the choo choo scam.  But, Californians are not buying it.  If the GOP was on top of things, it would not take a hands off approach to the Assemblyman Travis Allen sponsored initiative to repeal the tax—it would be supportive from the start.

“A poll out Friday from the UC Berkeley Institute of Governmental Studies finds that 58 percent of registered voters oppose the law signed by Gov. Jerry Brown in April. The findings could prove troublesome for Democrats in the Legislature running for re-election in 2018.

“If you’re in a competitive district, it could become a campaign issue,” said Mark DiCamillo, director of the IGS Poll.

If we wanted to win elections in 2018, we need to be the leaders in the effort to repeal this economy killing tax.  Stand back and be an observer and the trust and respect for a political party will go away.  Our candidates must be willing to speak about this tax and challenge the State and the GOP to oppose the tax—not just with words—but with actions.  What do you think—will you sign a petition?
