I understand how Democrats can perceive their never-ending endeavor to raise taxes and grow government as a good. I think it is utterly foolish, massively damaging, and ultimately immoral, but I understand how they can see it that way. What bothers me, though, and what I don’t understand is those who see little or no distinction between Democrats and Republicans. In many ways it is these people who are the most dangerous at the ballot box.
From The Sacramento Bee:
The Assembly’s Democrat-dominated Revenue and Taxation Committee on Monday approved an array of higher taxes on business while blocking Republican-authored tax cuts.
On party-line roll calls, the committee voted to roll back major business tax cuts that Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and the Legislature enacted last year and change the way Proposition 13, the landmark 1978 property tax limit, is applied to business property.
Together, those measures, if enacted, would increase state and local revenues by as much as $10 billion a year. But enactment is unlikely since all would require two-thirds legislative votes and Republicans are solidly opposed to all.
