A Vote on Taxes? Never Mind

A Vote on Taxes? Never Mind

John Seiler:

For more than three months now, we’ve been lectured by Gov. Jerry Brown, his fellow Democrats and government union leaders that voters must be given a choice on raising taxes.

Never mind! — as Emily Litella used to say on the old “Saturday Night Live” TV show. (See YouTube posted here.) Reports the Bee:

Gov. Jerry Brown faced growing pressure Tuesday to raise taxes without asking voters, which would require him to break his campaign pledge.

The head of the California Teachers Association, David Sanchez, said Tuesday that state leaders should extend higher sales, vehicle and income taxes through a legislative vote rather than passing the question to the electorate.

When it comes to torturing taxpayers even more, any old method will do.
