Keep in mind, this is the state government that is doing this. To be more specific, it is the state attorney general and the majority party in the Legislature - Democrats all - along with a tiny handful of turncoats in the GOP. If this were a contract, it would be unenforceable for being based on a fraudulent misrepresentation of the facts. And yet, we never hear about Democrat lies in the media.
I've asked this before: what happens if even one of these propositions fails to pass? Each one needs to pass in order for the numbers to work (hey, don't blame me. I have never gone along with the CA habit of budgeting by proposition). If they don't then it's crisis time again.
I, for one, will vote "NO" on all of them. At least three would result in the diversion of $$ away from K-12 education. Do the proponents of these propositions think these will pass easily?
We have tried to negotiate our way out of this by chasing the "last Republican vote" up and down the State Capitol. Now the gov't is trying to hustle the voters at the ballot box. If that fails, I maybe we'll finally take a long hard look at the Armageddon option.
