Today’s quote comes to us from California Governor Jerry Brown, who has had it up to here with…
…taxpayers objecting to California, one of the most heavily taxed states in the country, levying still more taxes.
The latest round of higher taxation, barely approved by the state’s vastly Democrat state legislature, involves fixing California’s road system via raising gasoline taxes 12 cents a gallon and a stiff increase in vehicle licensing fees.
This has upset some people enough to start a recall procedure against State Sen. Josh Newman, D-Fullerton, one of the bill’s supporters…which, in turn, has upset Governor Brown.
“Roads require money to fix. Republicans say there’s a magic source of money — it doesn’t exist. … You want to borrow money and pay double? Or do nothing? Or take money from universities?
…“The freeloaders — I’ve had enough of them. They have a president that doesn’t tell the truth and they’re following suit.”
This is a Republican plot? Democrat taxpayers are chafing at the bit to pay higher taxes?
Freeloaders? That’s what Jerry Brown calls the wildly overtaxed Californians who do not want the burden to be even greater?
Hey, here’s an idea, Mr. Governor: how about raising the money by shifting it from the goods and services handed to illegals on a silver platter? And by aggressively enforcing FEDERAL LAW regarding immigration, which would lower prison costs, since a disproportonate percentage of inmates in California jails are illegals.
Not only would that alleviate the tax burden, but it would open more jobs for legal citizens – not a bad idea, since California is in the bottom half of the country unemployment-wise. That’s hitting for the daily double, Mr. Governor.
Jerry Brown wins Quote Of The Day honors for showing us he is a ridiculous shell of whatever he used to be (if there was much even then), and how disdainful he is of the people who pay the freight in his state.
And an honorable mention to the voters of California, for putting him in charge and, essentially, making California a one-party state.
This is what you asked for, and this is what you got. Enjoy every second.
