Not again. California, the highest taxed state in the nation, is about to pay even more in taxes. Governor Jerry Brown won the support of Democrats to push through a transportation bill funded by raising gas taxes and Department of Motor Vehicles usage fees. According to the Sacramento Bee, Brown revealed California’s roads are in poor shape, and he wants a $5.2 billion road funding package. His plan would hike the state’s gas tax (by 12 cents) and set up a "user fee” based on a sliding scale tied to the vehicle's value.
Once again, Californians are getting screwed. How can we trust our politicians? They have diverted money for infrastructure to general funds, used tax-money for free college for illegal aliens, wasted money on a high speed train that no one wanted, and increased pensions for public unions.
Nobody is looking out for “we the people.”
