Editorial: Calif. Should Cut Spending, Avoid Tax Increase
According to an Orange County Register editorial, "Too often, Sacramento's revenue projections are inflated beyond reason, spending is increased even when supposedly being reduced and taxpayers are asked to balance the dishonest books.â The editorial states that Gov. Jerry Brown (D) and lawmakers "should reduce spending to within realistic revenue expectations, without adding to Californians' tax burden" with proposals such as a compromise tax hike plan developed by Brown and supporters of the "Millionaires Tax." It concludes, "That would be a giant step toward fiscal responsibility and honesty."
