Schwarzenegger calls for $14.3 billion in tax, revenue hikes

posted by Martin Wisckol, Politics reporter

Here’s the new budget proposal issued by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The Associated Press summary: “The administration’s proposal calls for $14.3 billion in tax increases and other new revenue, and $17.4 billion in spending cuts over the next 18 months. It also relies on borrowing and a plan the Legislature approved earlier this year to sell bonds to Wall Street investment firms based on the future value of the state lottery….

“It would raise the state sales tax from 5 percent to 6.5 percent starting March 1, lasting through December 2011. It also would expand the sales tax to services such as vehicle and appliance repairs and veterinary services, boost taxes on alcoholic drinks and tax oil production in the state.

“Schwarzenegger’s plan also would decrease the dependent income tax credit and increase vehicle registration fees.”

One question my politicians never answered me is how did this state get by 30 years ago? Had nice roads with a nickel a gallon gas tax, property taxes were a mere 300-400 bucks on a $50K home, registration on vehicles was ten bucks, we had nice schools, if a teacher quit, over 1,500 applicants for that job. 3% sales tax on only a limited number of hard good purchases, no sales tax on any food or clothes, virtually free state parks with very good service, fishing and hunting licenses were only a couple of bucks, low cost college tuition, the list goes on.

So I wrote my governor and asked them if they had records as to exactly what happened the last 30 years, with 52 cents a gallon gas tax, can't even plow the roads. Anything you tossed out in the garbage was picked up, today have to pay a bundle to get rid of a TV set, and the rest of it has to be washed and sorted, and anyway we turned, are literally being taxed to death. And even with all these new high outrageous taxes, they still fell 5.6 billion bucks short!!!

Something is wrong, bad wrong, and while he answered other letters, never answered this one, even though I have sent it several times already. If this isn't bad enough, state college tuition has gone up five grand in the last eight years, we are getting robbed blind, not by criminals, but by our government!!!

Don't just open your mouth and prove yourself a fool....put it in writing.

It gets harder the more you know. Because the more you find out, the uglier everything seems.

The reason I left Calif. Paid 8,000 in state income tax the last year I was there (2000), and got nothing in return. I now live in NV....NO state income taxes.


I finally got rid of the never ending money drain. I called the plumber, and got the problem fixed. I wish her the best.

So it's all your fault then, with 8 grand less to deal with, the legislator needed special trips and hearings to study how they can come up with that additional money, hired private consulting and accounting firms, contacted private attorneys to make sure the law they made wasn't broken. All that could easily add up to $14.3 billion, so that debt is your fault for leaving the state.
