California Proposes $4 Billion Dollar tax Hike


Just days after the Obama victory the tax hikes are already being brought to the table as the Terminator Arnold Schwarzenegger proposes a huge tax increase aimed at everyone in California. He is proposing raising sales taxes, so this effects everyone not just the top earners of the country. Maybe the if the Terminator would help put an end to all the illegals coming into the country, California would not have such financial troubles. California is flooded with illegals as it is proudly a sanctuary state. The reality is that our country cannot financially continue to pay for illegals to come here, because they cost us tax payers billions of dollars a year to pay for all the social services that they use. The cost to California alone is nearly $9 billion a year.

Schwarzenegger: $4.4B in tax hikes to end deficit
Judy Lin Thu Nov 6 2008

SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger on Thursday proposed $4.4 billion in new taxes and a similar amount in spending cuts to deal with California's worsening fiscal crisis, saying, "We must stop the bleeding."

Much of the new revenue would come from a 1.5-percentage-point increase in the sales tax; the Republican governor described the hike as temporary but did not say how long it would last.

"We have a dramatic situation here and it takes dramatic solutions ... and immediate action," Schwarzenegger said as he called theLegislature back into session to deal with the budget shortfall.

The governor said $4.5 billion in cuts will be necessary across all state programs, including education, social services, health care and prisons.

Just six weeks ago, Schwarzenegger signed an overdue state budget that was intended to close a $15.2 billion deficit. The rapid pace of decline in the national and state economies since then has reopened an $11.2 billion gap that threatens to widen even further.

Schwarzenegger's call for tax increases puts him again at odds with legislators in his own party. Republicans, a minority in both houses but strong enough to block spending plans, were steadfastly against raising taxes in the last budget, and the state Senate's GOP caucus chairman said that won't change.

"The fact is that during this time of economic challenges is not the time to go back to California taxpayers and ask for more money from them," said Sen. George Runner, of Lancaster.

Just as here in the UK it takes a matter of days for the socialist agenda to appear.
You will be left open mouthed before Christmas, that is if you are allowed Christmas, your Christmases are most certainly numbered now.So make the most of them while you can.

Yes, Joan I'm afraid you are right!
I heard a commentator talking about the "Europeanization" of America; being afraid that that's
what's begun. People like you, others who read this blog know that
it's started some time ago.....with
things like the accommadations to
Muslims,acceptance of illegal aliens,etc. I am 72 & I can't tell you how infinitely sad I am, so sad. But don't give up the fight.Most people just don't KNOW.

Most people are aware of it but think it "never happen here " But some of us know it jolly well will.
It is not visible in America yet because the Muslim poulation is so small so they abide by the laws, as their population grows they will make more demands and the public will become aware of it.
Business will bankrupt with litigation and the country will go under, gradually you will end up like us. Sunk, or to put it another way, up the creek without a paddle.

Look up on you tube the following two videos posted by kovmak.

(english)if you live in the west and are concerned with islam..

http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=OXIZCVFhbbE

(deutsch)islamische Habkanale in Deutschland

You will see by the first how it is done and see what stage you are at, you will also see by kovmak's postings we in the UK have had our first alcohol execution.
The second is an analysis in German, but you will be able to follow the subtitles and you will be shocked at the way Jews are made to look, just like nazi Germany, Germany are more advanced in numbers than the UK,there are evil looking puppet shows depicting the Jews and then finally a playstation like war video for the children to be brainwashed into thinking the Jews need exterminating, least ways, it was very pre war Germany and the Germans are seeing it for what it really is.As we all know they are in a position to.It opens with a little girl of 5 or so giving her opinion that Jews are monkey's and apes and being praised as devout and Islam could never have such a devout daughter.

I was quite frankly shocked and there was me thinking i had seen it all. which only goes to show i clearly have not.

video is not there. The terminator won't even go there about the illegals. Californians are leaving, what's left is dependent on the govt. Sadly many of those who leave bring their liberal ideas with them when those same liberal ideas are what made California the mess it now is. What about slashing payrolls and cutting way back those retirement benefits? Won't go there either.

Is there any Western leader that has a clue about what Muslim immigration is doing to their people? or do they just not give a damn?

Christopher Logan said...

There is a handful at best.

Geert Wilders from Denmark.
Peter King from Long Island New York who has said that there are already too many Mosques here.
The Northern Party in Italy that is severally cracking down on Islam. (Just search for Genoa on my blog).
Tom Tancredo who proposed the anti-Sharia law bill.
Sue Myrick North Carolina clearly gets it.
Virgil Goode Virginia who wants to limit Muslim immigration and spoke out against that Muslim Congressman Keith Ellison in Minn. being voted in.
