Only one of those will get done.

My thoughts exactly. And I will give anyone long long long odds that it won't be cutting services OR tightening belts.
Arnold increased withholding but that only front loaded revenues for the state. The final tax bill is the same. It's more of an "interest free loan" and didn't require voter consent.
There are temporary tax increases (sales tax?) set to expire, I believe, in 2011. Voters turned down extensions of those back in '09.
Will Brown be able to convince voters more taxation is needed?
