Politicians still don't get it. We feel overtaxed and we are. Just looking at my property taxes, they have continued to increase every year for several years. Fully 40% of my property taxes now pay for special assessments. That skirts adherence to the purpose of Prop 13. My water bill has add-ons that that make no sense whatsoever. If I didn't use any water during a billing cycle I would still have a bill for $75 or more. A gallon of gas now includes 18 cents federal, 18.4 cents State, and 9% sales tax. We pay so much in taxes that when productive working people struggle to feed their families, the government is actually responsible for their plight. Why can't government learn to live on less like we all have, and roll back or eliminate some taxes instead of proposing new ones? That would help boost our economy.

Amen, Right On the button. The sad part is that people vote for all these add-ons because they want the parks to be beautiful, a high speed train to Las Vegas, and so on and so on. Wake up people, and send a giant wake up call to those we elect. "I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take this anymore". If you didn't vote, you should have. If you did vote, thank you. No matter if we agree on the choices I will respect your constitutional right to voice it at a city council meeting, a board of supervisors meeting, in the opinion section of your local newspaper, with a sign in your yard. Please, please, please, stand up and be heard.
