So much new revenue is flowing into California that Gov. Jerry Brown’s May Revise budget projected an extra $4.5 billion this year. But even that was too low for Legislative Analyst, who projected another $3.2 billion on top of that[2].

Total: a $7.7 billion bonanza.

So what does the Democratic supermajority in the Legislature do? Say, “Thank you, taxpayers, for sending us so much money. We won’t tap you again.”

But noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

They want even more, sponsoring 20 tax-increase measures [3]to gouge us even more.

The Legislature should just get it over with: Declare the erection of the California Soviet Socialist Republic, seize all the “means of production,” set up a gulag to imprison opponents and take over the entire economy.
