    God are Californians stupid. They are already seeing an great migration of companies out of CA, with no companies coming in to replace them, now they will push the wealthy out of the state. CA is in a disaster, they are heading towards a 3rd world banana republic status.

    And I love the line: "The governor's plan includes some of the most popular ideas for raising taxes -- higher taxes on the wealthy and more money for schools," says Mark Baldassare, PPIC president and CEO. ==> They always use a red herring like this. If it was for the schools then do what Gov Walker did, make teachers contribute for their healthcare and pension plans, stop flooding illegals into the school system, stop the HIGHLY ineffective and HIGHLY expensive English as a 2nd language programs and for god sake quit bowing to everything the Unions demand.

    I bet any money they get will be wasted and much of it won't be on education. In fact, I bet in 2013, 2014, 2015 and beyond, CA will still be considered to have one of the worst public schools systems in the country, will still have massive budget deficits and they all continue to take about raising taxes on the rich again!


    One point to make if you are "rich" in CA your taxes are 10.1% and they want to raise that even higher! That's immoral!

    People in Cali are certified morons. They had the chance to dump Boxer and they blew it. Their economy sucks and they want to make it worse.
    The honest headline would be: 60% of Californians favor a tax hike on someone else.

    raise 7 billion for schools? what a laugh. I wonder how much money the NEA will be puting into the campaign to get this passed. They already raid the tobacco settlement money to give it to schools and other general fund items to boot.

    I have forgotten due to overload how many measures over the years for 'education' have been on the ballots out here.

    this is such crap. They have used money grifted form us for decades to hire administrators clerks etc etc, ahead of teachers, and in any event all of that falls away due to the fact that, we have constantly hired ahead of school population growth, and, the scores, achievement etc. of students has basically stood still.


    This tax the rich thing will never ever live up to its billing, if they say they think they will raise 7 billion, won't happen, the first year or 2 they will make theirs targets there after, either the people the money or both will leave. Look at NYC or Illinois.

    This is why only those who pay taxes should vote.

    JB is angry that his temp tax which expired in June didn't get extended.
    Gov. Jerry Brown pulls 'trigger': Colleges, schools and services for elderly and disabled hit - San Jose Mercury News

    SACRAMENTO -- Gov. Jerry Brown today said he would slash nearly $1 billion in funding for higher education, school buses, MediCal and services for the disabled, but K-12 schools will be largely spared from the devastating cuts many had feared.

    School district officials across the state breathed a sigh of relief at averting significant trigger cuts.
    Although they'll face a $248 million hit for school bus funding, it will be colleges, MediCal, child care, counties, local libraries and services for the mentally and physically disabled that will be hardest hit.

    Yeah for the democrats, long live Cali!
