California's Democrats want to tax the population into abject poverty.

California is trying to do something quite immoral. Right now the Democrats in the California state legislature are trying to increase taxes significantly in an effort to continue paying lazy and incompetent government workers high salaries and benefits that are not affordable. We are in a recession, and it is only reasonable that government would also reduce their expenses in light of the national recession. As I have always said, liberalism is not sustainable. In order to keep these government worker's high, the politicians have to make the public a lot poorer. Also, interestingly, unlike the Washington, D.C. Democrats who say that they want to only "tax the rich," California intends to tax everyone, from the poor to the middle class. What the Democrats want to do is steal from you in order to keep paying their buddies--the state worker's unions. Further, this is only going to result in more businesses leaving the Golden State, which will result in even less taxes going to the state, which will result in the politicians imposing even higher taxes on the middle class.

Here is a sample of some of the new taxes that California's socialist Democrats have conjured up.
  • Vehicle license fees would nearly double, going from the current rate of 0.65% to 1.15% of the value of a car or truck.
  • The sales tax would increase by 1 cent, raising the rate in Los Angeles County to 9.75%.
  • Gasoline taxes would increase by 12 cents a gallon.
  • And Californians would pay a new surcharge on their personal income taxes, amounting to 2.5% of their total tax bills (this is a tax on your tax!)
