California Governor Jerry Brown has assembled a broad coalition to support a tax increase to make up for the devastating budget cuts to public education under his predecessor Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Brown’s levy would raise the sales tax by 1/4 of 1% and increase income taxes of those making over $250,000 a year.
A wealthy heiress who also supports public schools prefers her own tax package and she is pouring more than $30 million of her personal fortune into attacking Brown’s measure amd promoting her own.
This is nuts.
Vote for Prop 30.
