Jerry Brown’s new Tax petition has hit the streets and make no mistake, it is a wolf in sheep’s clothing.
Jerry and his tax-raising friends over at the radical California Teachers Federation are circulating a measure to raise YOUR Taxes. But they’re doing so under the guise that it actually helps our schools. Make no mistake, this measure couldn’t be more misleading, right down to its very title, “The Schools and Local Public Safety Protection Act of 2012.”
For the left to suggest this measure will help schools couldn’t be further from the truth.
You see, the revenue raised from Jerry’s potential initiative would go into California’s General Fund – there’s no guarantee that it will fund education. Indeed, given that the state’s retirement funds are so far underwater that they’re being viewed by James Cameron, odds are high that any new tax revenue will go directly to pension benefits. (Don’t expect to hear this from the signature gatherers. They don’t get paid for telling the truth.)
But we don’t have to fall victim to their scheme. The Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association truly believes that the power of the People can prevail over the special interests in Sacramento – just like we did when we fought Proposition 1A. Don’t forget, in that battle we were outspent 20 to 1 and beat the tax raisers badly.
But we can’t defeat Jerry’s tax increase initiative without every concerned taxfighter informing their colleagues, family and friends about the truth. You see, voters have a right to ask the signature gatherers, “Does this measure increase taxes? And by how much?” To help you combat the misleading information on the streets, we have posted a list of questions for you to ask the signature gatherers when you are solicited. Go to our website today to get informed: Visit www.HJTA.org and click on the red banner on the home page that says “Don’t Sign the Petition!” And forward this to everyone you know, so they can be equipped with the truth.
Send a message to Sacramento that we are Taxed enough already. Don’t sign the Petition!
