We hear it on the television, on the radio and over the Internet. We see it in mailers sent to our homes. It’s the threat to our schools should Proposition 30 fail.
The threat would be comical in any other circumstances, but this is California, where our elected leaders will try to hold residents hostage – through their children – to get a sought-after infusion of new tax dollars.
California’s budget counts on the new taxes to make ends meet, even though they won’t. Literally billions of dollars that our schools need to educate our children hang in the balance, the governor and proponents of Proposition 30 maintain.
