    Here is the plan, raise the sales tax and income tax on people making $250K (not class warfare) substantially for "promised" cuts to welfare and social services (yea fat chance)! He wants the voters to vote yes to this or he put in the PENALTY of cutting education!!!

    First, if you think the Democratic Monarchy in CA is going to cut welfare, when they rely on giving welfare to get zombie voters, I have a bridge to sell you.

    Second, right now CA taxes people above $250K higher than any other state. Many have already left the state, more will go. They are already 2nd highest in the country in sales tax (Yep Cook County IL is the highest)! Who wants 2nd, CA wants to be first.

    Third, the threat is to hit education. The treat for higher taxation is always do this or we will have to kill the children. CA has cut so much to education is a laughing stock of the industrialized world, even students in Moldova say "heck it could be worse, we could be in the California school system." Yet liberals screamed LOUD and FAR about how bad Scott Walker was when he BALANCED a just as DAMAGING deficit WITHOUT raising taxes, cutting services, closing schools or firing teachers. In fact, they added services, have been one of the few states HIRING teachers and opening more schools!!! Yet CA is the state liberals say cares about education and WI is the one that doesn't!

    Fourth, there is no doubt to it. If these gets passed, by the same time next year, the CA deficit will be even higher, welfare costs will be higher and cuts to education will have happened either way!!!

    Gov Brown, who you crappin? CA is doomed!

    California is not doomed.

    They just need to cut spending and raise taxes.

    It's not rocket science.

    LOL, because if it was rocket science you would be able to understand it right?

    PROMISES to cut welfare and services aren't going to do a think. What they need to cut is: (1) Pension and Healthcare Benefits to Public workers, (2) Services to Illegals, (3) Do nothing government agencies (CA has a million of these) and (4) Redundant gov agencies(CA has million of these also)!

    Mark my words Christina, CA will be in worst debt same time next year talking about Promises to cut and raise taxes!

    You really don't know what you are talking about, they can't cut spending unless they ignore the courts, and they can't raise taxes unless they get a super majority vote.

    They have the highest taxes in the land and are trying to make them even higher while spending themselves into a 15 billion dollar hole. So your solution is to raise taxes even higher so they can go deeper into the hole. That's junk science. There ain't no rocket science going on in CA.
