California "temporarily raise income taxes for the wealthiest citizens and
add a quarter of a cent sales tax for all."I'm reminded of
the Utah "Flood Tax" implemented in 1987 and removed in 1994, during
which time we had no widespread floods. It was a "temporary emergency
measure" as well.I think California will find they will not make
anywhere near the $500 million claimed, and the tax will be at a minimum long
term rather than temporary. California, indeed most governments, are insatiable.
There is always another, oh-so-worthy cause.
