Letter to the Editor: Vote No on Propositions 30 and 38

One local resident asks others to join him in saying 'no to new taxes'

By David Springsteen

Say no to new taxes on November 6th.

Californians pay some of the highest taxes in the nation and every election the major focus of the politicians is to target our wallets.

The pro tax politicians and unions hide behind threats to public safety, and cuts in education in deceptive campaigns to go after more and more of our money. They never address the real problem, that being the need to reduce and reform the burdensome, and overbearing government bureaucracy. Every election, they claim crisis is inevitable, and use fear to manipulate voters into increasing our taxes. Interestingly enough, fiscal crisis has never been successfully averted through the increase of government revenue, and California has remained  in a continual state of economic decline.

Insuring increased  revenue for the politicians will never force them to stop wasting taxpayer dollars or practice fiscal responsibility. It will only allow them to maintain their current perpetual course of action.

Let’s put a stop to all new taxes this election and hold  government accountable for all of the money they already claim from us.

Vote no on 30 and 38.

When you get rid of tenure and base teacher's raises on merit not a union contract, then I will consider giving more money to California schools.

If you read the proposition itself instead of just what the advertising says about 30, you will quickly see that it gives no guarantee that any of the money or even a certain percentage of the money will go towards education. That's why I voted NO on all tax increase things on the ballot. If Jerry Brown really is concerned about our schools, he should not have signed the bill to spend multi millions of dollars on fast rail, while at the same time cutting way back on funds for education. I call it fast rail because it's a fast way to see our tax dollars speed down the drain.

I under stand the cuts and how it affects the schools and believe education is important. The problem is the elected officials in sac continue to hold the schools hostage. Governor Brown created a budget that relied on a new tax that he knew he could get because of planned cuts to education. The teachers union would fund the new tax campaign playing into the fear of education and public safety cuts. This is not leadership this seems criminal to me. Now that it has passed the upper end of the tax will affect business and some will close and leave. The new revenue will not meet expectations and the cycle continues. When was the last time a ballot came around without a new tax on it? I can't recall. They continue to milk California and it's drying up. Some reform is needed and the priorities need to be aligned.

In the latest twist, Thompson's http://www.louisvuittonoutletcft.net/ successor as the BBC's top executive, George http://www.louisvuittonoutletsc.com Entwistle, resigned on Saturday http://www.burberryscarfoutletvip.com after a November 2 "Newsnight" report http://www.coachfactoryoutletonlinebc.org wrongly implied that a http://www.coachoutletod.com former British politician http://www.coachoutletpn.com sexually http://www.coachfactoryoutletbo.net abused a child. After the Savile http://www.coachfactorystoredo.com scandal broke, Times Chairman http://www.coachoutletos.org Arthur Sulzberger Jr. sent the company's staff a letter http://www.coachoutletstorefb.com that said he was satisfied Thompson had http://www.coachoutletstoreonlinert.com no role in the http://www.coachoutletonlinelc.net decision to scrap the investigative segment on http://www.coachoutletonlinelon.com Savile. The Times did not http://www.coachoutletonlinelsa.com make Thompson available for interviews on http://www.coachoutletdt.net Monday. A spokesman said he spent his first day on the job meeting with employees and learning the company.
