CA Democrats Achieve a New Low in Use of Gimmicks to Pass a Phony Budget

Today, we here at the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association blasted the phony budget proposed by the Democrat majority in the legislature as a convoluted effort motivated solely by the need to continue to receive their paychecks.

As usual, the politicians under the Capitol dome are looking out for themselves.  They are so desperate to pass a budget – any budget – in order to keep their pay, they are willing to use any means, including illegal maneuvers and gimmicks, in order to do so.

Some examples…

  • The passage of a CALFire surcharge on home insurance policies is illegal if passed on a simple majority vote;
  • The proposed stealing of $1 billion from California’s First Five funds is illegal without a ballot initiative process;
  • A $1.7 billion request of funds from Redevelopment Agencies (RDAs) under threat of extinction is likely illegal under Prop. 22;
  • The $1.2 billion the Legislature is relying upon from the sale of State office buildings has already been determined to be illegal.

If self-serving lawmakers attempt to circumvent Prop. 13 and the will of the people, we will see them in court.

    When you are running a Command Economy why change?

    Every action the Socialists make brings us closer to a purge and massive rejection of their hurtful policies!

    The little people, the truly needy, the unemployed aren’t habitual masochists…they will choose freedom over corruption and legislators’ unlawfulness.
