Have you decided how you’re going to vote on Propositions 30 and 38, which would put into effect tax increases, allegedly for education?
Proposition 30 is Gov. Jerry Brown’s pet tax project: it would raise taxes progressively on those earning more than $250,000. Proposition 38 is more “democratic,” since the tax increases would fall progressively on those earning as little as $7,317, with a tax of four-tenths of one percent.
Both propositions are devoted primarily to K-12 education, but one-third of Proposition 38’s revenue would be dedicated to paying down existing bond debt.
