Is there any wonder CA is on the edge of bankruptcy? Not really, when one considers the “Tax and Spend Sisters” voters have continued to elect as their “leaders.”
California voters have yet to recover from the sucker punch they voted upon themselves by electing Barbara Boxer to the Senate in 2010. Now they have an opportunity to remove the “Too Long-Too Wrong Senator, Dianne Feinstein.
It’s the tax policies of Feinstein and Boxer that have led California to 11.00% unemployment. The number of people unemployed in California peaked in September 2010 at 2,272,943. There are now 241,565 fewer people unemployed in the state. From a recent trough of 2,012,350 in February 2012, the number of unemployed has now grown by 19,028. California job growth data is also available.
CA is number one in the nation in income and sales taxes. Look for that to change. The year 2012 is going to be the real ‘hope and change’ election for California. It all starts with the primary on June 5th.
