RE: [RC] cutting taxes? - Gary Fend

It was actually Prop 13 that "jiggered" the constitution.  It was passed by 65% of the voters with 70% of the registered voters voting.  Thats a lot of rich people.
But I agree.  We don't pay enough taxes.  I always add a few bucks when I pay my income taxes to the state.  Everyone else should, too.

My god, I can't believe the reaction I'm getting. The rich have won the war
of words. The only taxes that get raised are sales tax, now 10%, which is on
the backs of the poor and middle class. The rich have jiggered the
California constitution so that it takes a super-majority to raise income
taxes, so their millions are safe, but the rest of us have to eat it with
sales taxes and cuts in services we need that the rich don't. I'll leave it
at that.
