Your altruism will be rewarded with more talents whom we will create, develop and foster with the funding. This will attract more talents who will no doubt contribute to creating companies like Google, Apple, Intel and Microsoft. A job well done.

Now, we need to make sure the money will be spent on our kids.

I'm going to be very interested to watch this experiment. Either Democrats will finally fix things or Democrats will take us down the toilet.

Either way there will be no blaming the other party this time.

if there is a window of opportunity to repeal prop 13

pretty sure constitution trumps what they can do with that.

but I'm also pretty sure they can do a lot of tax-raising within Prop 13's limitations, like per-foot parcel taxes (as opposed to ad-valorem property taxes).

Not that they would be so intelligent as to start taxing away the trillion+ of property (over)-valuations here in this state.

Thing is, just higher income taxes will also have the same effect of hitting home valuations (and rents).

(I hope!)

32, 34 and 35 worked out like I wanted. 33 did not, but that was relatively low on my priority list anyway.

Higher taxes to support pensions for government workers while pensions have all but disappeared for the vast majority of private sector workers.

This "for the kids" schtick was a complete crock.

Brown is in the pocket of the public sector unions.

Don't blame unionized employees for the fact that private sector pensions have "disappeared." Blame private sector employers for this travesty. Anything else is pure class warfare, envy and jealosy and you know it!

PUBLIC unions are the travesty and should not even exist.

They are not like private unions which are badly needed to fight for workers rights against management.

PUBLIC unions have bought the management (politicians) and now degrade the quality of life of all citizens and make business conditions worse by constantly raising taxes.

If that is the case, that's not what prop 30 was intended to do. Then it should be repealed. We have the power to.

Because.... public workers never have workplace complaints, bad management, contract issues, or feel a need to negotiate as a group. Right. Workers are workers. I work for the state of California for 5+ years now and it's not the paradise folks in private employ seem to be imagining of late. Grass is not greener here. Anti-union bigots will not be happy until all vestiges of union are destroyed and we can go back to 60-hour work weeks with no vacation or sick leave.
