Our moronic governor wants a “temporary tax increase.” This is the same governor that says this tax will “only affect millionaires” but the tax kicks in at $250,000. Then he says “people making that much money will become millionaires if they save.” Now that is a moronic statement if I ever heard one. He was the governor when California implemented “new math.” Obviously he is a product of that concept.
I suggest readers put this letter in a time capsule to be opened when this “temporary tax” is scheduled to expire (should it pass), especially those of you who are considering voting in favor of this proposition. I guarantee that at that time there will be a movement to extend with the sales pitch being that “we are not raising taxes, we are just leaving them where they are.” It will be expressed that if the taxes expire that “police, fire and education will suffer.” That is the idiotic mantra that is used over and over again — you’d think that those are the only areas where money is spent. I’m willing to bet anyone a lunch at any fast food eatery in the county that this will happen if the tax increase passes. A fast food place is all I can afford after paying taxes.
After defeating this ridiculous proposal our legislature needs to become part-time so they have less time to come up with ideas to get into our pockets.
