"We need to raise taxes to preserve insert your favorite cause ,'' Perata said
The california mantra. It's all our politicians know is how to raise taxes and pander to the unions and special interests that own the state so that they can preserve their own political power. No matter the state is going to be bankrupt once anyone capable of paying taxes leaves.

Its not the fact state spending has grown faster than inflation and population growth combined. In California, the view of the political class is government is still underfed. If only the tax rate was 100%, there would be no deficit problem. Really.
