You don't matter to progressives.I have owned and operated a business in California for ten years now. I honestly cannot afford anymore taxes, I have taken a severe pay cut myself the past two years, raised prices and still cannot make ends meet. With the current taxes I still am not sure I can make it. If the state raises taxes anymore on small business then I am certain to go under. It is very sad, I work hard, provide a good working environment for my employees but the state is still not satisfied. Many businesses are leaving or going under as result. This will continue to cause a loss of tax base for the state. They (California Legislature) have created a snow ball effect that may not even be stoppable at this point. Just like when they raised registration fees for vehicles. Many people took their vehicle out of state and registered it there. The state now lost the income from that vehicle but raised it on yours. FIRE EVERY ELECTED OFFICIAL THIS ELECTION! If a new politician starts giving into the pressure of unions and other corruption, recall them right away!
Minorities, the lazy, criminal, and irresponsible, illegal immigrants, and Delta Smelt matter more than you.
