Prop. 30 tax increase now winning

11:21 pm, Nov. 6, 2012

By John Seiler

With 37.7 percent of precincts now reporting, Prop 30 now is winning, 50.4 percent to 49.6 percent.

Looks like Gov. Jerry Brown got his tax increase. Too bad it’s going to kill the small economic recovery and worsen the recession, as Gov. Pete Wilson’s tax increase did in 1991.

I suggest buying stock in companies that move people out of Taxifornia.

    Probably from Brown. You get a virus along with your tax increase.

    I didn’t get a virus or warning from that page but yesterday my anti-virus warned me of a virus on one of the Bee’s other pages.

    So John, what’s going to happen 6 or so months from now when it turns out Brown’s tax increases don’t produce the anticipated revenue?

    Or even if they do what happens when the anticipated revenue does not keep up with the actual spending?

    Arnold’s tax increases where much bigger and they didn’t solve anything.

    “Arnold’s tax increases where much bigger and they didn’t solve anything.”

    When Arnold was sworn in he immediately repealed Davis’s vehicle registration increase. Business flourished, and Arnold was quick to take credit for it. 

    The next year, business dropped off, tax revenues decreased, but somehow, THAT was not Arnold’s fault?

    Ceteris paribus:  “all other things being equal or held constant.”

    There are many factors other than taxes that affect business cycles and tax revenues. 

    And taxes as a percent of income are lower now than they have been since the seventies.

    So what ever happened to all of those predictions that “Prop 30 is toast” and “Prop 30 has no chance of passing”?

    It’s morning in California and America once again.

    Good question. The polls on 32 were pretty close. I didn’t really expect 30 to pass. I voted for it, and my wife had to work late, so she didn’t cancel me out.

    I was presently surprised that Brownbpulled it off.

    Prop 30 was won when Los Angeles County went with it, if you reverse LA CO then 30 loses. The large Bay Area counties voted for prop 30 on a 3-1 or 2-1 margin, big margins, but the large So Cal Counties voted against 30 by similar #’s, LA Co turned the tables;

    That secret eleven million dollars helped pass 30 and defeat 32. Notice to the billionaires–stay out of our business!

    Never underestimate Jerry, Molly! It if weren’t for your blatant disrespect toward the CEO of our State, you would be sipping champagne at the same table with him and Sutter this morning. Of course, I expect you will only cry on you way to the bank–unlike all those that you tried to screw would have been able to do, if you had won.
