This will solve nothing, except for pushing the problem till a further date. This will probably not even be enough to pay the teacher pensions. Until the problems are solved, this will do nothing, except take more money from tax payers.

Re: California tax reform

Taxpayers are what has always funded public education, notably before the passage of Prop 13 in 1978 (and the ensuing nationwide tax revolt).

Taking more money from taxpayers is exactly what we need, however, we must be taxing those most able to pay (i.e. the wealthiest Californians and the wealthiest Californian corporations), not those who are already struggling.

This is the type of confused reasoning that has caused this state to reach the edge of fiscal collapse.

@Sabrina Let me ask you this: Don't you at some point think that these "Wealthy" Californians will at some point get sick and tired of being taxed and vilified and will finally leave? Then what?

On the bright side we are now officially a one party state. No more pesky annoying viewpoints that we don't agree with. I for one breath a great sigh of relief.
