California No Vote On New Taxes

This usatoday article speaks to the California voters shouting loudly to the state government about proposed tax increases put forth to soften the state budget shortage brought about by spending rivaled only by Washington. It seems the voters in sunny California have had enough.

Four out of five measures dealing with higher taxes had failed by nearly 2-to-1,
and the fifth was trailing badly. The only measure to pass was one that banned
pay raises for elected officials in deficit years.

Seems like common sense to Ol' BC. Very little has been written in the main stream media concerning the vote. Some of the more liberal media criticized the vote, but it appears the people in the state of the Golden Gate have had enough. California may want to consider fiscal restraint as their next course of action. It may meet with a 2 to 1 approval.

Among those going to the polls was Kerrie Von Korper, a grocery worker said she
voted "no on everything. "We all have to live within our means, and that
includes the state,"

Wow! Maybe Kerrie can wield some influence in Washington. That sounds like common sense.

Just a thought.

Sacramento's thieves will take it all if we let them. Just as will those in Mordor DC. There's no end to their greed for undeserved values!
