Tax revolt? What tax revolt?
May 26, 2009
It is hilarious that some are trying to position last weeks’s budget proposition defeats as a ‘tax revolt’. Certainly some people voted no to keep their taxes put, but just as many on the left voted NO because we saw them as totally inadequate solutions, the proverbial kicking of the can down the road (and not very far at that).
I didn’t vote. I knew they were all going down so didn’t bother. But I have to confess I had to restrain myself: For a while I intended to vote YES just from listening to all the Howard Jarvis anti-tax commercials.
We need a real solution. That’s why I support an end to the 2/3 rule, and I’m glad about the possibility of a constitutional convention next year that would address the complete un-governability of the state.
