Editorial Urges ‘No’ Votes on Prop. 30, Prop. 38 Tax Hikes
A Contra Costa Times editorial argues that two tax hike measures, Proposition 30 and Proposition 38, are "the most critical items" on the November ballot. It states, "Last Sunday, we recommended voting against Proposition 38 [by attorney Molly Munger], which we see as a dangerous ballot box budgeting scheme." The editorial adds, "This week, we also must recommend that voters reject Proposition 30," by Gov. Jerry Brown (D) and supporters of the Millionaires Tax, which is a "cynical political calculation" that seeks to create only "short-term relief" for the state's fiscal problems.
