Don’t touch the 2/3 majority, you bastards!

Here is a reasonable example why California voters continue to distance themselves from the two major parties and chose not to state a political affiliation: Californians Still Believe in Proposition 13 Taxpayer Protections.

So why are the stinking A-holes in the Sacramento legislature aggressively seeking to overturn Proposition 13 and the two-thirds vote requirement to boost taxes on property owners.  Without this, every local, regional, county and state taxing agency is at one point or another going to want an orgies with the public, seeking pounds of  taxpayer’s flesh.

Assembly Constitutional Amdendment 8 (ACA 8) is being considered in the Senate after narrowly passing the Assembly last year.  ACA 8 would lower the currently mandated two-thirds vote threshold for local bonds to 55%, resulting in billions of dollars of new taxes being placed on the backs of property owners. Fox & Hounds << Link

Nearly 60 percent of voters agree that reducing the two-thirds vote to 55% to pass local bonds would place an unfair burden on owners of property, explains Jon Coupal, President of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association.

“The average Californian is very tire of the super cronyism in states and city government with a complicit media that instead of informing the public of government and legislators wrong doing or malfeasance, or thieving they gloss over it or propagandize to diminish the political fall out to the legislators party. Californians are also very tire how negligent our legislators along with their appointed bureaucrats willfully have little regard on how they blow our hard earned taxed dollars with no consequences to the perpetrator.” – Restituto Guzman Jr., El Camino College

I’m beginning to believe we need a unilateral legislature — like the Nebraska Legislature – no Assembly, no Senate. Just one legislative body.  Though Congress is broken and can’t be fixed, California is not there yet. However, people need to be advocates for their constitutional rights by showing these tainted legislators who is  in charge. 

Don’t forget the fierce tax revolt battle about 30 years ago. It is more important now then ever.

  1. Overturning the two-thirds vote requirement to boost taxes on property will exacerbate California financial woes and it will be a crippling blow to the majority of California struggling homeowners. Here is why:

    California has the highest personal income tax, second-highest corporate income tax, highest sales tax, highest gasoline tax, and the highest development impact fees.

    California has the fifth highest unemployment rate (second highest using the broader U6 measure); the third highest workers compensation insurance rates; the second-highest cost of owning an automobile; and the second worst bond rating.

    California’s residential electricity rates are 27.6% higher than the national average and California’s commercial electricity rates are 44.4% higher than the national average. For industrial use, it is 74.4% higher.

    Meanwhile, these stinking bastards in Sacramento are jerking themselves off — while tripping over the gaggle of special interests goons feeding them — working hard to overturn the two-thirds vote requirement to boost taxes on property owners.

    Legislators are successfully halfway through this legislative process.
