They want to close a property tax loophole that has cost the state buku bucks in revenue. ... and a mild tax increase on the wealthiest residents of California. The state is going to cut another $200 million from the budget for higher education next year.
and sorry about the balls and spine comment. It was early and i was obviously in a bad mood.
Its impossible to defend the police in that spot, given what we can see and probably allude. Closing a loophole? I'd probably be able to get on board with that, but I'd want a performance audit of several aspects of Cali's government before I supported tax increases. If I remember correctly they have some of the most wack abuses by public sector workers, and their tax structure is already driving out business.
